Work is well underway to expand the Home Bargains store in Hereford.

Work started last week with the store temporarily closed. The closure of the store came into place on Christmas Eve and the expansion work is expected to take a number of months to compete, with a reopening date expected to be announce sometime in the spring.

The store, located just off Holmer Road in Hereford is to nearly double in size after extending into the unit previously occupied by Bensons for Beds.

The refurbishment and expansion is expected to create a number of new jobs and follows similar investment in Hereford from companies such as Lidl and Farm Foods.
