Due to the collapse of Sterling, the bargain store has been forced to rebrand as ‘Tuppence Zone’. A spokesperson confirmed: ‘One Poundland is currently trading for a single Walmart carrier bag.’
Investors in Poundland have found their liquidity drop to the point where they may need to shop at Poundland. Sadly all in-store items are now worth considerably more than a pound, leaving their sole product range as penny sweets, now valued at 99p each.
Traditionally the pound had a pound for pound ratio, but now it is only measured in ounces – renamed the Sub-atomic Pound, given its relative size. The Treasury said: ‘If we had a pound for every time the pound was devalued… in fact, that might be the problem.’
