New store announced for Newport, Wales

We’re delighted to announce we’re opening our 10th Welsh store in Newport in a fortnight’s time – creating lots of brand new jobs for the city.

The new store – which opens on May 23 at The Newport Retail Park – will see the creation of around 30 brand new jobs and give one local person the chance to take a tilt at the trolley dash world record.

This member of the Newport public will be able to ‘sweep’ up all they can scoop and put in their trolley in 99-seconds to celebrate the opening of the new store.

It will take place just minutes before the Grand Opening at 10am, and if they go on to beat the world trolley dash record of 267-items in 99 seconds then their trawl and haul (which they get to keep) will be doubled!

The lucky person also goes on to be a guest of honour for the day – as well being invited to wield the giant scissors and cut the ribbon at the official opening!

“This person will become a true ‘VIP’ for the day,” says 99p Stores boss Hussein Lalani.

“A Very Important Pennysaver that is!”. 

Anyone interested in applying to take part in the dash should email their details to before midnight on May 20th.
