The Range is owned and run by Plymouth-based entrepreneur Chris Dawson and is recognised for offering more than 65,000 quality products across 16 departments including; DIY, homewares, furniture, lighting, arts & crafts and garden, all at affordable prices.
Chris Dawson, owner and founder of The Range, commented: “It is fantastic to be opening our second store in Bristol. Due to the great success of our other Bristol store, we are giving in to high demand of the local residents and providing them with another outlet. We will be making the opening of the store a real event in Bristol, with some amazing opening offers. We are hoping locals will come down and celebrate with us."
Bringing another Range superstore to Bristol will create a further 150 part and full-time jobs, from store and department managers to warehouse and admin staff with local people already applying for these positions.
Chris further commented: “I would like to thank the council for all of their help in making our second Bristol store possible. They have been extremely helpful. It’s also fantastic to be creating so many jobs at the same time – It is a great boost for the local economy, particularly in these tough times.”
Thanks to its competitive prices, The Range has thrived during the past few years while some of its famous retail rivals have struggled. Nearly all of The Range’s new stores are in spaces left vacant by victims of the recession, notably MFI and Woolworths - while many ex-MFI and Woolworth’s staff have returned to their old workplace as an employee of The Range.
The Range Bristol will be located at The Junction, Imperial Park, Hartcliffe Way, Bristol, BS13 7TJ.
