In line with current Government guidelines, the new store will have extra safety procedures in place to protect both staff and customers when it opens. These include social distancing floor markers, sanitising stations at the store entrance and contactless payments where possible.

The new store will be located at Cherwell Street, Banbury, OX16 2BB.

The store's opening hours will be: Monday – Saturday 9am – 8pm, Sunday 10.30am - 4.30pm

The new branch will be creating 80 full and part-time jobs, with roles varying from store management to warehouse staff, which is sure to have a positive impact on the local economy.

The new Banbury store will also provide great value products and everyday essentials from cleaning supplies and health and beauty necessities, to pet care and DIY products.

The Range is a home, leisure and gardens retailer selling a wide selection of products across 16 departments including kitchen and dining, furniture, arts and crafts and textiles.

The Range first opened a store in Plymouth in 1989 and there are now more than 180 stores across the UK and Ireland.
