Discount store Home Bargains’ plans to create 700 jobs at its Croxteth distribution centre, increasing its staff from 400 to 1,100. Whilst initially the group planned to relocate the centre to the Midlands their plans were not approved. The £35m proposal will both expand the distribution centre and create a modern training centre where store managers and trainees would be coached in a shop environment open to the public. It will see the firm’s existing warehouse expanded to treble the amount of business it handles.TJ Morris, who trade as Home Bargains, said the expansion would enable them to service 350 stores across the UK.
