WH Smith opens ‘clearance’ shop in Croydon with items on sale for as little as 20p
As many as 3,500 bargain-priced items, mostly at under £3, will be available at the North End store.
Stationery giant WH Smith has opened a new ‘clearance’ shop in Croydon with items on sale at heavily discounted prices.
The Clearance Outlet, which is a standalone store, is located within the existing shop on North End.
Customers can browse through the extensive end of range products across books and stationery to find themselves a bargain as prices start at 20p and the vast majority of products are priced at under £3.
There are 3,500 product lines to choose from at any one time.
Product lines vary from items such as pens, pencils and pencil cases, office stationery, education and reference books, to toys and games.
New products will be added each week
This new concept store has been opened to bring in a new customer base to WH Smith in Croydon.
WH Smith Croydon store manager, Kim Little, said: “We are delighted to have opened the Clearance Outlet within our store in Croydon.
“We hope that the arrival of this new outlet will complement the great ranges already available within the store, as well as attract new customers to benefit from some fantastic prices.”
The opening means many discounts that were previously only available to customers online will now be on sale in-store and it comes after similar stores opened in other areas of the country including Hull, Gloucester and Chester in October and November.
Opening hours at the store on North End remain unchanged, being open seven days a week.
