A former Homebase store in Portsmouth has been split into two units and will see two new retailers open up their doors in the next few weeks.

B&M and Smyths Toy Superstore have moved into the former Homebase building on the Ocean Retail Park in Burrfields Road, and will open on Thursday 7th and Saturday 9th November, respectively.

The B&M store will offer a wide range of food, DIY, home goods and toiletries, and will also feature a garden centre.  Over 65 jobs have been created by the store.

A B&M spokesperson said: ‘We are all really excited to get the doors open and welcome our new customers in November.’

Other retailers on the Ocean Retail Park include Boots, Card Factory, Carpetright, Carphone Warehouse, Currys PC World, Halfords, Lidl, M&S Foodhall, Oak Furnitureland, Tapi, TK Maxx and Wren Kitchens.
