The Haverhill Retail Park, the £5 million development in south-east England, was announced back in 2015.
Just 2 years after the original announcement, dates for the first few stores of the Haverhill Retail Park have now been revealed.
Bringing as many as 60 jobs to the area, Home Bargains and Pets at Home will be the first brands to open their doors in Haverhill Retail Park.
First, we'll see Pets at Home opening their doors on the 8th of September, bringing a total of 13 jobs. This 8,000 square-foot store will be equipped with an adoption area as well as vetting and dog grooming services.
Alice Lowe, the area manager for Haverhill's Pets at Home, has stated, "We've considered opening a Pets at Home establishment in Haverhill for a long time and we're incredibly happy that the community has welcomed us with open arms."
"We are committed to providing the area with a high-quality pet supply store, as well as making sure that their animals are taken care of by our grooming and vetting services", she continued.
The manager of the new Pets at Home in Haverhill, Suzie Copleston, has worked with the pet supply giant for almost two years. Suzie told us, "We've been incredibly busy over the last couple of months and we can't wait to open our doors for the first time. This is a huge achievement for our staff team."
Following the opening of Pets at Home will be the new Home Bargains store, who has been advertising for 50 new staff members (including store assistants, a maintenance team, and cleaners).
According to a Home Bargain's spokesperson, "We've yet to determine an exact opening date, but we are currently in the process of filling up our staff positions and encourage anyone who is interested to apply as soon as possible. We plan on opening our doors sometime in October - so keep an eye open for us!"
Lastly, Lidl will be opening their doors in Haverhill Retail Park towards the end of the year and much like Home Bargain, a date is yet to be determined. However, they have announced that they will be hiring a minimum of 40 new jobs to the area.
