Three new shops are due to open in Stamford, including a Poundland.

The firm has placed adverts recruiting a store manager for a Stamford branch.

The location of the new branch has not been confirmed but rumours suggest it could be in the former Dorothy Perkins and Burtons store in the High Street. The firm, which has 450 stores nationally, refused to answer requests for information from The Mercury.

Meanwhile, posters advertising vacancies have gone up in the former Meander shop in St Mary’s Hill, saying Stamford Independent Pharmacy will be opening soon.

And a tearoom called The Buttercups Tearoom is also due to open soon in the former Team Sports shop in St Mary’s Street.
