Specialist lighting retailer Pagazzi Lighting has confirmed it plans to open a new superstore in Bolton later this month.

The new 15,500sq ft site will be located at the Middlebrook Retail Park and will create 17 jobs, with part of the recruitment including the appointments of a number of former BHS staff, which recently closed last month.

Pagazzi confirmed that the new store, which will be its biggest to date, will officially launch on 23 September and will become the company’s 17th outlet within the UK.

The announcement follows its recent, and first, concession opening at Dobbies Garden Centre in Preston on 13 August, taking a space of 2,200sq ft.

Laura Pagan, founder of Pagazzi, said: “Securing a concession within the ever popular Dobbies is an exciting time for Pagazzi and we are absolutely delighted.”
