The Range announces May opening date for huge new store at Kirkstall Bridge shopping park
A huge new The Range store is set to open at a popular shopping park in Leeds this spring.
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 said in February that there had been an 'unforeseen delay with the launch of the Kirkstall store' so the opening date will be pushed back.
It has now been announced that it will open at Kirkstall Bridge Shopping Park on May 28, joining the likes of Home Bargains and Pets at Home.
The new store will be spread over two shop floors.
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 Kirkstall 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.
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.
