Learning to love pound shops

The recent recession has fuelled a big increase in the number of pound shops in Leicester, particularly in areas such as Belgrave Gate and Granby Street.

The typical reaction to these is one of embarrassment and barely-disguised snobbery as if only wall-to-wall fashion and department stores are acceptable in the city.

Given that they've been around for hundreds of years and we all use them, can't we find a way to celebrate discount stores and turn their presence into a positive feature of the city's retail mix?

Roll on Leicester's Discount Quarter!
