Donald TrumpFrom red ties to Donald Trump cut out masks, Poundland is ensuring shoppers don’t need ‘toupee’ the price for the perfect costume this Halloween, by stocking a range of scary limited-edition Donald Trump products.

The President’s infamous red ‘Make America Great Again’ cap has shocked shoppers and proven the most popular item, with more than 8,500 flying off shelves since launch, closely followed by the Trump wobble head figurine and #Trump rosette.

Since calling on bargain hunters to help shift the range in light of Trump’s cancelled state visit to the UK, Poundland today confirmed that over 40,000 products have been sold nationwide, ensuring that people will get a real fright this Halloween.

Poundland’s Trading Controller, Chris Wall said: ‘The Trump range is perfect for Halloween – it’s the most frightening range we’ve ever sold. With shoppers able to purchase anything from the range for just £1, it’s easy to shock your friends as the POTUS at this year’s Halloween party.’

If Trump isn’t your ideal Halloween costume, we also stock Halloween masks and decorations; including spider webs, pumpkin tealight holders and day of the death skulls continuing to jump off shelves, Poundland is sending shivers down spines this October 31st, without scaring the bank balance.’
