Pepco Group was established in 2015
Pepco Group was established in 2015 and comprises two strong, independent value retailers – Pepco and Poundland, which also trades internationally under the Dealz brand, together with a global sourcing arm, Pepco Global Sourcing (PGS), which works very closely with both operating companies. Together Pepco and Poundland operate across some of Europe’s largest economies. Pepco Group is listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange (PCO).
Pepco is the fast-growing value retailer in Europe. The retailer operates nearly 3000 stores in 19 countries.
The first 14 Pepco shops opened in Poland in 2004. Pepco expanded into Czechia and Slovakia in 2013 and between 2015 and 2017 opened stores in Croatia, Hungary, Lithuania, Romania and Slovenia.

Pepco’s stores are conveniently located in small to medium-sized towns and offer customers a bright and inspiring retail experience. They range in size from 350 to 700 square metres.
Pepco is widely recognised as one of Poland’s strongest brands and most dynamic companies.
