A national retailer has opened a new store in Portishead.
Home Bargains has spent about £500,000 on building a store off Harbour Road.
The Portishead shop is one of 400 stores Home Bargains operates in the UK and the new shop will employ 50 members of staff.
The retail unit was officially opened on November 7, with children’s favourite fictional characters Gru and Stuart from Minions and Despicable Me taking part in the ceremony.
Home Bargains has opened about 50 shops this year, and the company believes it is doing a good job at bucking the national trend.
