A new The Range home furnishing store is set to open at Kirkstall Bridge Shopping Park in April.

The new store will take over the vacant units left by M&S and Outfit.

It will open at Kirkstall Bridge Shopping Park on April 9, joining the likes of Home Bargains and Smyths Toy Superstore.

The move has already been welcomed by commenters on Kirkstall Bridge’s Facebook page.

Emily Hingley said:

“Brilliant! Although it will probably be better to park miles away and walk as traffic will be shocking!”

Lesley Lavery added:

“Great to hear a new store is opening. Sadly it’s gone downhill a bit since M&S closed and the other shops more recently.”

The Range offers everyday essentials, including cleaning, health and wellbeing, food, pet care and more. Other The Range stores in Leeds include the Springs Retail Park in East Leeds and City South Retail Park in Hunslet.

Outfit sold a combination of clothing goods and was part of the stricken Arcadia Group, which has seen the Dorothy Perkins, Wallis and Burton brands bought by online fashion retailer Boohoo for £25.2m. Physical stores were not included in the deal.

Last year, Peacocks at Kirkstall Bridge Shopping Park closed and M&S Food shut in 2019.

  1. Please DON’T park in nearby streets as the Facebook commenter has suggested – it’s bad enough as it is with people parking here for the Abbey despite being singularly unable to parallel park on steep hills, plus there being a distinct lack of parking for actual residents as it is.

    The huge impact to the local area from the traffic from this development is appalling and should never have been allowed. Not to mention the constant late night deliveries disturbing residents, just so that people can buy yet more unnecessary ‘stuff’. How many more things do people possibly need to buy? The environment cannot take many more years of completely unnecessary purchases of random tat that is then thrown into landfill the next time you go shopping for more of it.
