SUPERSTORE The Range will open its doors on Good Friday, March 29, at the former Total Fitness building on Winwick Road.

The garden, home and DIY shop is owned by Plymouth-based entrepreneur Chris Dawson and around 150 full time and part time jobs are being created.

Chris Dawson commented: “Warrington is the perfect location for us as a company.

“We are very much looking forward to the move and there is much more to come and it won’t stop here, that I can guarantee you.

“With so many people struggling to find work, The Range is pioneering the way for creating jobs up and down the nation.“ The application was given the go ahead by council planners last week.

Mr Dawson added: “We are very pleased to be able to create a number of local jobs and are confident this store will play a huge part in the continued success of The Range brand across the UK.

“I would like to thank the council for welcoming us to Warrington with such open arms.

“We would like to welcome the locals to the store opening, so they can see first-hand, what we are about and the great quality and value products we can offer them.”
