Home Bargains has announced an official opening date for its Eastbourne branch.
The flagship store should be opening in the Langney Shopping Centre extension on January 25, 2020.
The shop, which sells discount toys, home, and garden ware, will be approximately 19,000 square foot of the shopping centre’s 35,000 square foot transformation.
Shopping centre manager Neil Avis said, “We’re delighted to welcome Home Bargains to Langney Shopping Centre. As the flagship store in our exciting new £6.5m extension, it’s sure to be popular with shoppers of all ages.
“It’s fantastic to have another big name retailer joining us and we’re pleased Langney is going to be the home of its first branch in the area.”
The £6.5 million extension will bring 13 new stores, a gym, improved car park and extra living accommodation over the centre.
Additions to the Kingfisher Drive site include a Costa and Snap Fitness.
