Poundstretcher is a discount store, founded by Paul Appell and Stephen Fearnley, in 1981. It has been through several changes of ownership and is now owned by Crown Crest Group.

There seems to be a lot less food on the website, than there used to be. This may or may not be indicative of the stock situation in store. Many of the Poundstretcher stores can be found in town centre locations, where there may be less space for stock storage.
