A discount chain that sells branded products at reduced prices has said that its new Derby store will open for business this weekend.
TJ Morris, which owns retailer Home Bargains, has confirmed that its new outlet at the Wyvern Retail Park, remains on course to open on Saturday.
The firm will open its latest store in a unit that was formerly occupied by Currys PC World, from 8.30am on the day.
It was first revealed last year that the company intended to open at the Wyvern when it lodged a planning application with Derby City Council to change the signage on the building.
Once the Wyvern Retail Park store opens it will be Home Bargains’ third Derby store. It already has outlets at Bradshaw Retail Park and in Moore Street, off Normanton Road.

Home Bargains stores operate on the principle of selling branded goods at the lowest price possible. The strap line used by the firm is “Top Brands, Bottom Prices”.
The business was founded more than 40 years ago by Tom Morris, who opened his first store in Liverpool. Today, it is one of the biggest privately owned companies in the UK, with more than 400 stores employing around 17,000 people.
According to the firm, it has ambitions to grow its number of stores to 800 and employ more than 30,000 staff.
On average, its outlets stock around 4,000 branded product lines. The stores sell a variety of household items including food, clothing and games.
