He added: “We look forward to welcoming customers through our doors and we hope our store at the Victoria Centre will be popular with savvy shoppers in Harrogate.”

David Horth, Victoria Shopping Centre Manager said: “We are currently in the process of renovating three former units on the ground floor of the centre in preparation for the arrival of Poundworld.”

“Hoardings have been in place since July 18 to allow for work to take place. This is an exciting time for the Victoria Centre.”
