OFFERS: Shoppers queue ahead of the opening of Poundworld, in Newton Aycliffe, in November, 2015 MORE than 30 jobs have been created in a County Durham town centre by a discount store which has taken over a defunct chain’s former unit. Bargain Buys will open its doors in Newton Aycliffe Shopping Centre at 10am on Friday in a ribbon-cutting ceremony by the Deputy Mayor of Great Aycliffe, Cllr Mary Dalton. The new store is located in the former Poundworld, which was opened by Cllr Dalton, then Mayor of Great Aycliffe, with great fanfare and huge queues in 2015. It was one of all Poundworld stores to close by August this summer following the company going into administration. The 5,000sq ft store had previously been Poundstretcher and is the twelfth Poundworld store to be taken over by Bargain Buys. Property director, Gerry Loughran, said: “We are pleased to be opening a brand new store to the people of Newton Aycliffe with loads of fantastic branded products, all at bargain prices, and look forward to opening another 50 stores over the coming months, creating over 1,000 jobs. “The team is working hard to deliver an outstanding shopping experience, great service, and an enjoyable shopping environment for all our new customers.
