Launch of new retail store follows closure of Homebase branch

Hundreds of festive shoppers turned out to gain a sneak preview of the new Range store in Maidstone on Sunday (November 8).

Concerns had arisen surrounding the closure of the Homebase outlet that had previously been on the St Peter’s Street site, but plans for the new firm swiftly emerged in its wake. Homebase will now focus its retailing efforts within the area on the firm’s larger store at Aylesford in the South Aylesford Retail Park.

The unofficial ‘soft launch’ of the Range attracted bargain-hunters eager to examine the company’s Christmas deals, with a formal opening planned tomorrow (November 19).
