Poundland forced to rebrand as 80pLand since Brexit

author avatar by 8 years ago

Popular cheap shop PoundLand is to rebrand as 80pLand to reflect what’s happened to the British currency in the last week and a half.

The pound, which has given up thirty years of gains in under a week, is currently doing a remarkable impression of Felix Baumgartner that time he jumped from orbit and Poundland has to reflect that in their branding.

The store is having a succession of signs made also naming themselves as 75pland, 70pland,  60pland and NoMansLand to reflect future falls.

80pLand spokesman Simon Wi££iams told us that that chain had made the decision with a heavy heart but that a pound wasn’t worth what it used to be these days.

“It’s ironic that many of our customers are elderly people who complain that a pound isn’t worth what it was when they were younger”, her told us.

“Well, now it’s not worth what it was last week. Or twenty minutes ago for that matter.”

“Hang on; I’ve just heard that we’re 79pLand now. Roll up, roll up!”
