Our work relies on the kindness of the public and we are so blessed to be given gifts like this, and for the ongoing support from our community.”

The new Chesterfield store will join over 500 outlets across the UK. Opening approximately 50 stores a year, Home Bargains is bucking current trends in the industry.

Katie Goddard, the new Chesterfield store manager, said: “It’s a huge honour to be opening our new Clay Cross store this weekend and something that I’m exceptionally proud of.
