TWO flagship stores are set to open on Tunbridge Wells’s new retail park at the beginning of next month.
Marks and Spencer will open its new home store on October 7.
It will be the largest of its kind in England and will include a food hall and 96-seater cafe.
The store will feature a full range of kitchen, bathroom and bedroom furniture.
Manager Kevin Warn said: “We have a great team in place and look forward to welcoming all our customers.”
Just days before on October 1 the new Pets at Home store, in which the company has invested £550,000, will open – with 17 new jobs being created.
Shoppers will be able to buy thousands of different products for dogs, cats, reptiles and birds to name but a few.
They will also have the chance to use the grooming parlour in which their pampered pet can be bathed, blow dried, microchipped and groomed.
Celebrations will get under way at the store on Saturday October 2 and Sunday October 3 with free children’s entertainment and a ten per cent discount for customers.
