New shop opening in Wolverhampton>
Over 2,000 people flocked to Queen Street, Wolverhampton today for the launch of our latest Poundbakery store, as Wolverhampton Mayor Councillor Mike Heap and Mayoress Frances Heap cut the official ribbon to announce the opening.
The launch of Poundbakery in Wolverhampton marks the third of a major roll out in the Midlands for the brand, with the recent openings in West Bromwich and Bilston celebrating thousands of customers each in the first day of trading.
