THE credit crunch is biting hard and is sure to last till Christmas.
So if you're looking for an easy way to make the pound stretch a little bit further over the coming months, make sure you pop into the Poundland store in Poplar Way, Mell Square.
Since opening up on the Solihull scene back in 2001, the popular shop, part of Europe's largest single priced discount retailer, has become a must-go for all savvy local shoppers.
With every item priced at just £1 the store offers shoppers quality products at amazing value.
The Solihull store manager, Paul French, said: "The store is experiencing a very busy time at the moment. "The most popular ranges include Back to School, Halloween and many of the '3 for £1' and '2 for £1' offers, which offer extra value.
"It's great that Poundland can offer the perfect solution to busy mums and families struggling through these tough economic times."
What's more, Poundland's biggest ever Christmas range will be in the Solihull store next week, giving customers another chance to save.
