Homeware retailer Dunelm has confirmed the opening date of its huge new North Staffordshire store.
The new branch has been built at Wolstanton Retail Park, in Newcastle-under-Lyme, next to fellow retailers M&S and Matalan.
The 34,000 sq ft store – which includes a Pausa Café, a standalone Dorma shop and the latest concept Made to Measure department -will be officially opened on Monday, April 12 when the next stage of the national lockdown restrictions are lifted.
It will initially accommodate a capacity of 102 shoppers until at least June 21 to enable visitors and staff to socially distance.
