The UK-based home, leisure and garden products retailer The Range has announced that its new head office will open in Derriford, Plymouth in summer 2019, creating 450 new jobs across buying, e-commerce, IT, marketing and accounts. The leader of Plymouth City Council  said that the new head office and the ‘superstore’ located next to it was very important for the city of Plymouth as it gives permanent work for hundreds of people as well as opportunities to the local people.
