Blackpool Range gets set to open in-store Iceland

Home | Blackpool Gazette

Staff from supermarket brand Iceland are making the final preparations to open its latest Blackpool store, inside The Range.

 

The store will launch its new Iceland department on Friday, September 3, providing the community with fresh and frozen food alongside their everyday essentials.

The in-store offer will include brands such as Greggs and Slimming World in the Iceland section, alongside fresh fruit and veg, meat, dairy and store cupboard staples.

The Range building has been extended to increase its floor space to 40,000 sq ft and it will be expanding its offering in the town. The lighting, kitchen and dining plus home décor departments will see new collections introduced.

The outdoor garden centre will be moving from its temporary location to the original bigger garden centre in the store too.

The move is part of an ongoing partnership between the two retailers which began in 2018 and there are now more than 90 branches of The Range with an Iceland in-store.

A spokesman for Iceland said: “Iceland and The Range is an ideal partnership offering customers an innovative shopping experience that brings both concepts together under one roof.”

Iceland has not said if any of its Blackpool stores, such as the nearby outlet in Waterloo Road are likely to be closed as a result of the move.
