SHOPPERS will be quids in when Coronation Street’s Katy Cavanagh aka ‘Julie Carp’ visits the new Poundland store in Chester.
The Frodsham Street outlet opens on Thursday, April 14, creating 32 jobs.
And Katy will be in-store for a family fun day on Saturday, April 16 , signing autographs and having her picture taken with local fans.
From 10am she will be giving out £1 vouchers, which shoppers can exchange for anything from a pack of Kodak batteries to greeting cards.
Shoppers will be invited to take part in the ‘checkout challenge’ where £100 worth of Poundland vouchers will be given away throughout the day.
Poundland’s in-store DJ and entertainer will be giving away balloons and sweets.
Poundland’s trading director David Coxon said: “We are delighted to bring our unique proposition to Chester.
“Poundland offers exceptional value on top branded products to over 3.5 million customers every week.
“The £1 price hasn’t changed since we opened our first store 20 years ago. Our current customers love us and we are sure the Chester shoppers will too.”
