The announcement a new Homesense store is opening in Perth, bringing new jobs to the area, will be welcomed due to the “challenging” times for the retail sector, according to a Perth city centre councillor.
The brand new homeware store, which is part of the TK Maxx family, will open on Thursday, September 13 at 10am, at St Catherine’s Retail Park.
The opening will create 30 new jobs and will offer over 15,019 square feet of bargain priced everyday homeware.
Cllr Eric Drysdale said of the news: “I’m absolutely delighted that Homesense is to open a new store at St Catherine’s Retail Park.
“It’s great that such a well known brand sees Perth and Kinross as an area in which to invest at what is such a challenging time for the retail sector due not least to the deep uncertainties being created by Brexit.
“This is going to be a huge boost to the development of St Catherine’s Retail Park as a shopping destination, and of course it’s fantastic that this also means more jobs for the city.
“This can hopefully be a catalyst for further similar investment in the future not just by the TK Maxx Group but also other leading retailers keen to be part of the action in our vibrant city.”
The new store will have a full homeware offering with unique finds for every room of the home.
From gourmet cookware, to furniture, lighting and decorative items, to bedding and bathroom accessories, along with gifts and seasonal décor.
Frequent deliveries will provide new items each week.
A Homesense spokesperson commented: “We are delighted to be opening a brand new store in Perth, our third to open in Scotland.
“We can’t wait for shoppers to walk through our doors and discover an array of homeware treasures.
“Forget everything you know about shopping, at Homesense, you might pop in for bakeware and leave with a one-of-a-kind chair – and with savings up to 60 per cent everyday, you can browse away guilt-free.
“Homesense operates an exciting off-price concept which offers unique and branded homeware by providing an eclectic and ever-changing mix of branded homeware.
