Have your say

More than 150 jobs will be created in Sheffield when The Range launches its brand new superstore at Meadowhall Retail Park.

The store, which will be located on the former Homebase site, will stock more than 65,000 products across 16 departments - including DIY, homeware, furniture and arts & crafts.

According to Plymouth-based entrepenur Chris Dawson, who owns The Range, the move to Sheffield this March is part of huge expansion plans he has for the company.

Chris said: “Our success is down to our staff and we’re very pleased to be creating a number of jobs when we arrive in Sheffield. I would like to thank the council for welcoming us and for being so supportive.”

Applications may be submitted at the local job centre.
