- Poundland can’t dump Trump
- Thousands of Presidential products purchased for POTUS visit.
- Stores are asking for shoppers to ‘dump Trump’ in style.
Willenhall, United Kingdom, 2017-Sep-01 — /EPR Retail News/ — With Donald Trump’s re-scheduled UK Tour not happening any time soon, Poundland are calling bargain hunters to help shift their new limited edition American range, which was purchased ahead of his forthcoming state visit.
Thousands of Donald Trump masks, American flags and a whole range of presidential themed items have been stocked in Poundland stores nationwide, in time for the now-cancelled October trip.
Poundland are calling for shoppers to help them shift the stock and get creative with the range using the dedicated hashtag #PoundlandDumpsTrump – to collectively, as a nation, dump the Trump merchandise.
The Poundland Limited-Edition Donald Trump £1 merchandise includes:
- Donald Trump cut-out mask
- The Presidents infamous red ‘Make America Great Again’ cap
- Red Donald Trump ties
- Make American Great Again? pencil rubbers
- Trump golf balls
- Mini American flags
- America flag headbands
- Mini Donald Trump bobbing head figure
- #Trump rosette
- Trump themed photo props
Poundland Trading Director, Barry Williams said: “We are asking for our customers help. The range was created ahead of his UK visit, but given this is not happening now, we reckon the only way to sell the products is to encourage shoppers to come up with unusual ways to use it. The range is also perfect for Halloween. Just wait until you see the Donald Trump masks, they’re probably the scariest things we’ve ever sold.”
The full range is available nationwide from today until stocks last
