As one of the UK’s largest family-run retailers, Home Bargains is creating 51 new jobs in the local community with the store. In total, it will employ 54 team members, including some staff and management, who will be transferring from local stores.
It will also be donating £2,000 to a local charity, Rosemere Cancer Foundation, which works to bring world-class cancer treatments and services to cancer patients throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria.
Daniel Hill, Head of Rosemere Cancer Foundation, said: “We are very grateful to Home Bargains for their fantastic donation. Their gift will directly benefit local cancer patients in the community. We were thrilled to hear that the new staff team at the store voted to support Rosemere at their grand opening and look forward to hopefully building our relationship with them moving forwards.”
The new Preston Queen’s Shopping Park store will join over 575 outlets across the UK.
Natalie Wright, the new Preston store manager, who has worked for the business for three years, previously managing the Breightmet Bolton store, said: “This is the fourth Home Bargains we now have in Preston and the first store opening that I’ve been directly involved with. The team and I are very excited, and we are all thrilled to provide another Home Bargains for the community.”
The 18,740sq. ft store will offer shoppers a range of products, including homewares, health and beauty essentials, sweets, snacks, and drinks, as well as fresh and frozen food.
Natalie Wright added: “Queen’s Shopping Park will be a great location for us, and we’re proud to offer local people top-branded goods at exceptionally low prices.”
