Chipping Norton’s newest discount retailer QD – will officially open in the town on Thursday August 5.

The first customers to enter from 9am will be able to get some of 100 'goody bags' being given away by the store.

The mayor of Chipping Norton, Cllr Georgia Mazower, will cut the ribbon to mark the occasion.

QD will bring to Chipping Norton its unique offering of home, gardening, pets, clothing, furniture, groceries and more – all at discounted prices. Located at 1 – 3 High Street, QD occupies the former Beales premises, which has been vacant since Spring 2020. QD has undertaken a full refit to transform the 8,500 sq ft sales area, and recruited 16 new local staff to work in the store.

Nick Rubins, CEO of the QD Group, said: “We are so excited to be opening in Chipping Norton on Thursday and can’t wait to show the town our excellent quality products at amazing prices and ever-changing spectacular deals.

"QD has been an independent family-run business for over 30 years and this ethos is something we’re continuing in Chipping Norton. Customers can always be sure of a warm welcome in our new store and value guaranteed!”

The QD Group is an independent, family-owned chain of High Street value retail outlets. There are now 28 QD - stores across the country.

The original concept of QD Stores’ quality discounted retailing was first established back in 1985 by the company’s CEO Nick Rubins’ father, and current chairman, Danny Rubins. The aim was to offer customers a wide range of constantly changing, quality products at discounted prices, which led to the stores’ name QD – short for Quality Discounts.
