HOME BARGAINS has revealed an opening date for its new store in Bracknell.

The old unit in The Peel Centre has been gutted and worked on to get it ready for Home Bargains.

The budget homeware chain promises 'top brands and bottom prices' with signs already in place in the windows.

According to a poster outside, the store will be opening its doors on Saturday, February 26.

It is still a long time to wait but residents are already 'excited' for it to open.

Julie Ann told the News: "I was so excited when I saw the sign in the window last night.

"I keep going to Basingstoke as it’s a bigger store than Reading and can’t wait for this to open.

"Was hoping would be before Christmas. I hear there is a big one opening in Newbury this weekend."

Once it opens, Home Bargains’ usual range of items will see 30 per cent of the floor space being turned over for the sale of food.

The main Next store was closed on September 13 after the lease on the unit expired. Yet Next briefly returned to the Peel Centre as a temporary outlet.

The loss of the Next at the Peel Centre was mourned by Bracknell shoppers, even though the fashion chain retains a presence in The Lexicon.
