Chain’s second store in town creates up to 40 jobs

Booming discount chain Home Bargains has pumped £500,000 into a new Stevenage store which is now open for business.

The company, one of the UK’s largest family-run retailers, has created up to 40 new jobs after setting up shop on the town’s Monkswood Retail Park.

It’s the chain’s second store in Stevenage - there’s already one in the town centre, as well as 350 other outlets across the UK.

The chain’s expansion programme sees it open on average another new store every week.
