UK home and leisure retailer The Range has announced it is to open its latest superstore in Waterford next month.
The company says 80 full and part-time jobs, from store to department managers and warehouse
assistants to retail administrators, will be created when it opens at Musgrave Business Park on Good Friday (March 30th).
The Range has over 150 stores across the UK and Ireland and stocks 16 departments across furniture, arts and crafts and DIY.
The Waterford store will also have a family cafe and a outdoor garden centre.
Founder of The Range Chris Dawson commented on the upcoming opening: “This store has been on my radar for a long time so we are delighted to finally be able to confirm the opening date for Good Friday.
The job provision that comes with the new store should provide a great boost to the retail park and town of Waterford. This opening, along with Maynooth which will open in the spring, is a great step in the company’s Irish expansion plans. We look forward to welcoming our new customers to the opening in March”.
The Range opened its first store in Ireland in Limerick in August 2016 and will have
6 stores in the Republic of Ireland by Easter 2018.
