Minions will be helping to open a new discount store in Rugby.

Home Bargains is investing approximately £500,000 in its new store on the former Morrisons site on Westway.

It will be officially opened on Saturday November 7.

The event will feature a special appearance from Stuart from the hit Universal Pictures films Minions and Despicable Me.

The company, which is one of the UK’s largest family-run retailers, is creating up to 50 jobs in the community with its latest store.

This will be the first Home Bargains store to open in Rugby, joining over 400 outlets across the UK.

Joe Morris, operations director at Home Bargains, said: “We’re thrilled to be launching our first store in Rugby and look forward to welcoming both new and existing customers through the doors.”

The 11,500 sq ft unit will offer Rugby shoppers a range of products, including homewares, health and beauty essentials, sweets, snacks and drinks.

Joe added: “Westway will be a great location for us and we’re pleased to be a new addition to the local business community.

“We’re proud to be able to offer local people top-branded goods at exceptionally low prices.”

With more than 3.5 million customers each week, Home Bargains is one of the country’s best-loved discount retailers, stocking top-quality branded goods at low prices.
