The Range to open on old B&Q site in Southend

WORK is continuing on a major new store in Southend town centre.

The derelict former B&Q site in Short Street is being prepared to be turned into a branch of The Range.

The DIY chain store is due to open its doors to the public on November 29.

It will create 150 new full and part time jobs – including Christmas temps.

Chris Dawson, owner of the chain, said: “When looking for new stores location is very important to us and we feel that the new Southend store is the perfect location.

“We are a fast growing company and expanding at a rapid rate, and I am confident that The Range Southend will play an important role.”
