CTN group Rippleglen is hoping to bag a greater share of the growing discount market with the launch of a new transactional website.

The group, which currently has 91 stores nationwide, has launched the ‘More Than Just a Pound’ website selling a wide range of £1 items alongside tobacco products, electronic cigarettes and confectionery.

Shoppers must spend a minimum of £10 to use the service and standard delivery costs £4.30.

Rippleglen’s buying director Laraine Jones said: “In recent months the internet has seen an influx of £1 discounters entering the online market, we wanted to offer something different; we are ‘more than just another pound’ shop website, our range includes tobacco, electronic cigarettes and liquids, bulk confectionery, American candy as well as lots of £1 items.”

Rippleglen trades under the Supernews, News Shops and Arden News fascias in the Midlands, North West, Yorkshire, the North of England and South Wales.
