The hotly anticipated opening of The Range in Luton took place on Friday, as customers queued outside in a bid to win special prizes.
The new home, retail, and leisure store opened in Madford Retail Park, Dunstable Road, on Friday, February 17, and the shop’s ribbon was officially cut by Deputy Mayor of Luton, Cllr Dr Raja Saleem.
Plymouth based-entrepreneur, Chris Dawson, the owner and founder of The Range, said: “Opening a new store is always a proud moment for the company. It was great to have so many people turn up for the opening.
“The new store is providing around 80 new jobs which should be a great boost for the area. We would like to thank the council for all of their support in welcoming us to Luton”.
His new store has 16 departments spread over two floors including a large arts and crafts, homewares and DIY department. It also includes a Dee Dee’s family café selling “delicious food and drink at affordable prices”.
There are plenty of store opening offers which will be available until March 5.
