Home Bargains Formby
Home Bargains has invested approximately £7 million in its new store in Formby, which will be officially opened at 8.00 am on Saturday 26th June 2021.
As one of the UK’s largest family-run retailers, Home Bargains is creating 121 new jobs in the local community with its store on Stephenson Way. In total, the store will employ 134 team members, including some staff and management who will be transferring from local stores.
It will also be donating £2,000 to local charity Compassion Acts, who work in collaboration with Southport food bank. The charity works to prevent and reduce poverty and increase social wellbeing in Southport and the surrounding communities.
Jess McGlynn, Poverty Reductions Manager at Compassion Acts, said: “Without the support of retailers such as Home Bargains, we simply couldn’t do what we do for the local community. A huge thank you from all at the charity and we wish the launch of the Formby store every success.”
The new Formby store will join over 500 outlets across the UK. Opening approximately 50 stores a year, Home Bargains is bucking current trends in the industry.
Graham Wallace, the new Formby store manager, said: “It’s a huge honour to be opening our new Formby store this weekend and something that I’m exceptionally proud of.
“I started my Home Bargains journey back in 2009 at our Kirkby store and have never looked back since. However, helping to launch the new Stephenson Way store will be a huge accomplishment for both myself and my fantastic team.”
The 28,783 sq ft store, which formerly housed Homebase, will offer shoppers a range of products, including homewares, health and beauty essentials, sweets, snacks and drinks, as well as fresh and frozen food.
The new store will also come with its own garden centre – GardenWorld at Home Bargains – that boasts a fantastic range of plants, soils and garden décor at amazing prices.
Graham added: “Stephenson Way will be a great location for us and we’re proud to be able to offer local people top-branded goods at exceptionally low prices.”
