The Range is to open its first store in Northern Ireland tomorrow, creating 80 new jobs.

The new store is located in a former B&Q unit in Braidwater Retail park, Ballymena, and features a cafe and outdoor garden centre.

In August of this year, The Range opened its first store in Southern Ireland, located in a former Atlantic Homecare unit in Limerick’s Childers Road Retail Park.

The Range is growing at a rapid pace, having gone from just over 50 stores in 2011 to over 120 nationwide.

Recent openings and associated stories include:

In April this year Chris Dawson, founder and owner of The Range revealed that the value retailer - which stocks more than 65,000 products across 16 different departments, including furniture, DIY and art supplies - had plans to expand into Europe, and had its sights set on a presence in Germany.

He said: "We are really excited to begin our Northern Irish expansion in Ballymena," 

"It is a great step in helping the business to progress and grow.

"We feel that The Range is a unique shopping experience that has something for everyone, and we are sure that the new store will be a welcome addition to the area."
