Opening of huge new The Range store at Kirkstall Bridge Shopping Park delayed due to 'unforeseen' circumstances
The original plan was for the store to open on April 9, bringing 80 new full and part-time jobs to the city.
However, a spokesperson for The Range has said there has been an 'unforeseen delay with the launch of the Kirkstall store' so the opening date will be pushed back.
It is not confirmed when The Range will open now, but it is hoped that it will be by the summer.
The new store will be on the site of the old M&S and Outfit stores, spread over two shop floors.
The Range in Kirkstall will sell a ranging selection of products from Petcare to cleaning supplies.
The store will have extra safety procedures in place to protect both staff and customers, including social distancing floor markers, sanitising stations at the store entrance and contactless payments where possible.
The store's exact address is on Savins Mill Way, LS5 3BL.
A The Range spokesperson said: "Unfortunately there has been an unforeseen delay with the launch of our Kirkstall store so the opening date will be pushed back.
"At present I don’t have details of when this store will be opening but I will let you know as soon as I do.
"We’re all hopeful that it will be by the time we reach the summer."
It will be the fourth branch in Leeds, with the third having only recently opened in December last year at The Springs Retail Park.
Other existing The Range stores in Leeds are located in Birstall and at City South Retail Park.
The Range sells a wide selection of products to style the home, including bedding, statement lighting and ornaments.
The UK retailer now operates over 180 stores across the UK and Ireland.
