Langney Shopping Centre has revealed the name of a major retailer who has signed up to go into its new extension.
Home Bargains, which sells top brands at low prices, will open next summer when phase one of the shopping centre’s extension is complete. The popular retailer was ranked sixth in the Which? list of top 100 stores and is the highest ranking discount retailer in the UK.
The centre is currently undergoing a £6.5 million transformation which will bring 13 new stores, a gym, improved car park and extra living accommodation over the centre.
The extension will add an additional 35,000 sq ft, taking the centre’s total area up to 115,000 sq ft. The Home Bargains store is approximately 19,000 sq ft.
The centre’s manager, Neil Avis, said, “I’m delighted Home Bargains has signed up to be the anchor store in our new extension. It will complement our existing shops and add a new dimension to what we can offer shoppers. It will be the first Home Bargains store in this area and we’re excited to welcome the team.”
Home Bargains was established more than 40 years ago in Liverpool and is now one of the largest privately owned companies in the UK. The company has more than 400 stores, employs more than 17,000 staff and is the largest independent grocer in the country. It is still a family-run and family-owned business.
