99p Stores chain to open store in Hitchin next week

A BUDGET discount chain is due to open at the former B&Q site next week.

Family Bargains, which is owned by the 99p Stores chain, will open its doors on Wednesday at the Nightingale Road site.

It will be the first time in several years that the site is occupied.

The opening of the 22,916 sq ft store will create 35 jobs, with the chain working with Job Centre Plus in North Herts to fill the positions.

“Demanding value on everything – essentials, lifestyle and luxury - has become a daily part of the shopping experience in Hertfordshire and Britain today,” said Hussein Lalani, owner of the chain.
