A NEW branch of Poundland has finally opened on a High Street in Somerset after months of preparation.

The high-street budget retailer opened its doors for business in Wells on Saturday December 9, the city recently named the UK's best for Christmas shopping.

Since its opening, many locals have been surprised at the prices of the items inside.

Despite its name, it appears many of the products on offer at the new Wells branch of Poundland are actually priced well over £1.

It does still appear to be good value however, as some of the offers included a onesie for £12, along with several other clothing options, cheap toiletries, and of course - snacks and chocolate.

The store also offers Christmas decorations, but a wooden nutcracker will set you back as much as £8.

The new Poundland resides in the former M&Co premises on Wells High Street; making the most of the venue's large and spacious interior.
