A national chain with a focus on home and leisure has announced it is moving into the former Outfit store on Great Yarmouth's Gapton Hall.

When The Range opens it will bring a new name to the town, and mean the shopping park will be fully let.

The home and leisure specialist will open a 16,000 sq ft store in the Autumn, taking over the unit formerly occupied by Outfit.

Refurbishment is underway after changes to the layout were given the green light by planners on June 11.

It will be the first The Range store in Great Yarmouth, the nearest branch being in Lowestoft.

The Range is a home, leisure, and garden retailer selling products across 16 departments including DIY, kitchen and dining, arts and crafts, furniture and textiles.

The company operates more than 180 stores across the UK and Ireland. The first shop opened in Plymouth in 1989.
