Twenty new jobs will be created in Wymondham when a new shop opens next month.
The Original Factory Shop, the chain of local discount department stores, will open a new store in the former Funtime Factory site in Ayton Road on Saturday, November 23.
The company, which has more than 180 stores across the UK, is investing £250,000 in the new site and the Wymondham branch will be the firm’s fourth store in Norfolk alongside Dereham, Fakenham and Diss.
The firm also plans to open another 15 stores across the UK as part of a £2.2 million investment.
Area Manager, Marnie Haslam, said she is confident that the store will breathe new life into Wymondham town centre and that it will play a role in the local community.
“There’s a real buzz around town about us opening and the feeling is that our blend of great value, well-known brands and unbeatable prices will make us a firm favourite with local and visiting shoppers alike,” she said.
Shoppers at the 8,300 sq ft store can expect to find clothing for men, women and children, as well as homeware, electrical goods and toiletries, and a range of branded goods.
The Leicestershire-based firm was established in 1969.
