The Range opens in Milton Keynes

A new superstore has opened its doors to the public in Milton Keynes bringing in 150 new jobs.

The Range, in Grafton Court, Snowdon Drive, Winterhill, is the company’s 79th across the country, the 10th to open in 2013 and one of three stores on the same day.

Customers queued up for the 9am official opening today (Friday), by Mayor Brian White.

The superstore does what it says in the name, stocking a wide range of products.

Entertainment within the store included Captain Range with balloons.

Milton Keynes North MP Mark Lancaster said: “I am always pleased to see new jobs being created in Milton Keynes and especially in the lead up to Christmas. I have no doubt the Range will be a welcome addition to the retail market in MK and with 150 new staff; it will become one of many large employers we are lucky enough to have based here locally.”

Chris Dawson, owner and founder of The Range said: “We are pleased to invite the community to see what we are all about.”
