Emmerdale’s Marlon Dingle was in town recently to cut the ribbon at the new Poundland store.
Actor Mark Charnock did the honours at the former Peacocks shop in the retail park.
The opening started a day of celebrations which saw Mark posing with fans and signing autographs.
Store Manager, Kyle Fraser, says: “It was a fantastic day, everyone was having fun!
“It was a great way to welcome shoppers in Falkirk to the new Poundland.”
During the family fun day a DJ entertained the crowds and many lucky shoppers won vouchers to spend in the new store.
David Coxon, Trading Director at Poundland said: “We are delighted to see that the shoppers of Falkirk welcomed us into the community.
“Poundland offers amazing value on many household and branded products and we hope that local customers here will enjoy making us part of their weekly shop.”
