A NEW Range store will open at 9am on Friday, November 20, at Altrincham Retail Park in Broadheath.

The store will have 16 departments spread across two floors including a Christmas shop and a café.

The store will be officially opened by the Mayor of Trafford, Cllr John Holden, who will be joined for the ribbon cutting by Chris Dawson, the owner and founder of The Range.

On November 21 there will be free face painting for children and a free craft demo run by DO Crafts (Design Objectives).

Chris Dawson commented on the upcoming opening: “The Altrincham store opening comes at an exciting time of expansion for the company. We have three more new stores planned for the end of the year and many more into 2016.

"Altrincham is the perfect location for The Range and we look forward to inviting the community to celebrate the Grand Opening this Friday”.
