Home Bargains has invested approximately £6 million in its new store in Droitwich, which will be officially opened at 8.00 am on Saturday 5 December 2020.
As one of the UK’s largest family-run retailers, Home Bargains is creating 75 new jobs in the local community with its store on Roman Way Retail Park. In total, the store will employ 83 team members, including some staff and management who will be transferring from other stores.
It will also be donating £2,000 to the local charity, Droitwich Community Pantry & Fridge, which provides food parcels for homeless and vulnerable individuals, and families across Droitwich, using surplus and rescued food from supermarkets, shops, manufacturers, wholesalers and distribution centres across Worcestershire.
The new Droitwich store will join over 500 outlets across the UK. Opening approximately 50 stores a year, Home Bargains is bucking current trends in the industry.
Jack Jelicic, the new Droitwich store manager, said: “We’re thrilled to be opening our new store in Droitwich this Saturday and look forward to welcoming customers through its doors.”
The 24,509 sq ft store, which is a brand-new unit built on the site of a former Homebase store, is adjacent to Aldi and DFS, and will offer shoppers a range of products, including homewares, health and beauty essentials, sweets, snacks and drinks, as well as fresh and frozen food.
The new store will also come with its own garden centre – GardenWorld at Home Bargains – that boasts a fantastic range of plants, soils and garden décor at amazing prices.
Jack added: “Having worked for Home Bargains for over 10 years, I have to say opening the store this Saturday will be one of my proudest accomplishments.
“Roman Way Retail Park will be a great location for us and we’re proud to be able to offer local people top-branded goods at exceptionally low prices.”
With more than five million customers each week, Home Bargains is one of the country’s best-loved discount retailers, stocking top-quality branded goods at low prices.
