The opening date for Sussex’s newest Dunelm has been revealed.

The new store in Brighton Retail Park in the city's Carden Avenue will open its doors on May 30 banners on the shopfront announce.

Situated in the former Next unit, the store has created 35 new jobs and will stock a variety of products including bedding, kitchenware and haberdashery, alongside Dorma and made-to-measure departments featuring curtains and blinds.

Many items will be from Dunelm’s Conscious Choice range, which is made from at least 50 per cent more sustainable materials and which now forms 26 per cent of Dunelm’s total range.

The store will also house a textile takeback fixture, allowing customers to return unwanted textile products from any retailer to be purposefully recycled or redistributed, rather than end up in landfill.

Speaking in February, Daniel Bennett, regional manager at Brighton Dunelm, said: “We’re very excited to be opening our new Dunelm Brighton store.

“We will be recruiting colleagues to join our team over the coming weeks which will be advertised via the Dunelm Careers website. We will then be working hard over the next couple of months to get everything set up and ready to welcome the local community into our amazing new home.”
