Next Episode of Saving Poundstretcher is
As the crisis on Britain's high streets grows, big brands are going bust or axing stores and thousands of jobs. Poundstretcher, one of Britain's oldest discount stores, is caught up in the maelstrom. The stakes couldn't be higher for the family-owned chain, with 6000 jobs, the family's fortune tied up in the business and the public relying on it; for many, on a budget, it's a lifeline. In need of expert help, Aziz Tayub and his three sons bring in retail guru Chris Edwards as a new CEO. His brief: to save the company.
Chris tries to convince Poundstretcher's owner, Aziz, to stop stocking unusual and niche products. And Chris meets inspirational members of staff at a store in Bolton that's earmarked for closure.
Poundstretcher loses millions of pounds every year to theft, as there seems to be more and more shoplifters. But shocking revelations suggest that the real issue lies closer to home.
In this final episode, can Chris stay the course and save the brand? Tensions reach boiling point as deep differences between Chris and Aziz come to a head. The 'crazy ladies' of Pontypridd in south Wales are some of the Tayub family's most loyal and fun-loving staff. They say they'll do almost anything to attract the punters, from blowing up balloons to wearing bikinis. But one thing they're not crazy about is the inconsistent delivery of stock to their store.
