The Range to Open in Wakefield's Former Homebase Unit on Good Friday

The Range Barnsley 725 x 500

The Range's latest store opening will take place on Good Friday at Wakefield's Beck Retail Park, on Ings Road.

The store is one of seven former Homebase units that The Range intends to open in 2019 and is the 170th branch of the variety retailer to open in the UK and Ireland since it launched in 1989.

Over 80 jobs have been created.

Firm founder Chris Dawson said: “Each store plays an important part in the success of our company and Wakefield is no exception.

"This site has been on the radar for some time and we are delighted to replace the former Homebase with a new national retailer in the town.

He added: “We are very lucky with the staff we have and I look forward to welcoming the new team members to the company. I would like to invite the local community to join us for the opening next week and discover the fantastic selection of products that we offer.”
