New jobs boost at Alfreton store

An Alfreton store is set to expand with the creation of 12 extra jobs after a £350,000 investment.

The new-look Home Bargains shop on Institute Lane boasts 27,000 sq ft of space and now employs 55 people - making it the retailer’s biggest premises in the UK.

The firm, which has stores in Heanor, Sutton-In-Ashfield and Mansfield, plans to open a further 50 stores across the UK in the next twelve months, bucking current trends on the high street. Operations director Joe Morris said: “Institute Road has been a great location for us – we’re thrilled to be increasing the size of the store, so we can offer even more top branded goods at exceptionally low prices!”
