High Street trader Home Bargains is launching a new city store at the Forge Retail Park at the weekend and has recruited up to 40 workers.

The retailer is investing £500,000 in a new 13,000sq ft store - a unit in Biggar Street which had been previously used by Sports Direct - which is due to open on Saturday.

Operations director Joe Morris said: "We're excited that this will be our eighth store in Glasgow and look forward to welcoming both new and existing customers through the doors."

He added: "Forge ­Retail Park will be a great location for us - we're thrilled to be in a position to offer local people top branded goods at exceptionally low prices."

The Merseyside-based discount retailer specialises in branded goods at low prices.
