A new Home Bargains store looks set to open in Armley in the former Wilko store off Stanningley Road.
A planning application has been submitted to Leeds City Council by Home Bargains owners TJ Morris for a new shop frontage and shutters at the former Wilko’s store which closed last September at Centre West Retail Park.
The plans include a new shop front with shutters, goods entrance and fire escape doors, repair and paint existing cladding, car park resurfacing and associated work.
In a letter accompanying the application, developers say they will ‘reuse and refurbish’ existing floorspace at the store and add: “The Wilko store which had previously occupied the unit has now closed and this application will allow a new, well-established retailer to occupy the unit which will revitalise the town centre of Armley.
“The proposed works will allow the building to be refurbished to a high standard to allow Home Bargains to expand their existing representation in Leeds.”
No date for opening the new Home Bargains store has yet been given. The company already has stores in Kirkstall and Stanningley.
