Thirty jobs as discount store opens in west Cumbria

A £500,000 shop opens in Whitehaven this weekend creating 30 jobs.

Home Bargains will be welcoming customers from Saturday, when it begins trading in Preston Street.

The chain, which describes itself as a “top brand, bottom price retailer”, will be based in the town’s former Focus building.

Joe Morris, operations director at Home Bargains, said: “We are excited to be opening this new store in Whitehaven.”

The company, which has more than 250 stores, says it is bucking the trend on the high street, with plans to open 50 shops across the UK in the next year.

It sells lines including homeware, health and beauty, sweets and snacks, home styling, soft drinks and alcohol.
