A new discount store is due to open in Blyth.
Bargain Buys will open at the site of the former Westgate Department store at 10am on Saturday, August 8.
And the opening has created 40 jobs in the process.
Customers will be able to benefit from a range of low prices on products including branded groceries, cleaning products, home wares, pet care, holiday items, toys and more.
Manager Stacey Mitchinson said: “It’s fantastic to be bringing 40 new retail jobs to the area and we’ve got a great team on board.
“Bargain Buys is an exciting new brand with mega deals so we hope Blyth shoppers will come down and take a look at what’s on offer.
“Discounters are becoming more popular than ever and we’re expecting plenty of savvy shoppers through our doors this Saturday”.
Bargain Buys Blyth is the 51st to open in the UK and is part of an expansion plan to open a further 50 stores across the UK in the next year.
