Home Bargains has revealed its opening date for its brand new store in Plymouth. The budget retailer is recruiting ahead of its launch at the Erril Retail Park site in Plympton.

A sign outside the store, which is on the site of the former Buyology shop which closed in 2022, says it will open to shoppers on Saturday, October 19 this year.

Currently, the closest Home Bargains is across the Tamar Bridge at the Carkeel Gateway in Saltash. There is also another store in Kingsteignton.

The store is also advertising job roles, with one advert currently live for a full-time 'team leader' role with a £29,079 salary. You can search Home Bargains jobs here.

Home Bargains owner TJ Morris said that it had such a successful year in 2023 that it is able to open hundreds of more branches across the country, including Plymouth.

TJ Morris said turnover growth "was achieved by the opening of additional retail outlets during the year, shop re-sites and an increased contribution from existing stores", reports BusinessLive. It added: "The company intends to increase the number of retail outlets in operation in the year to 30 June 2024, and to eventually have between 800 and 1,000 retail outlets open."

It's not the only unit in the area being given new life. The equally run-down Allied Carpets is also going through a revamp into a builder's merchant, with a trade counter, showroom and secure service yard.
