THE crowds turned out for the opening of Evesham's new superstore The Range, which lies on the town's Four Pools Retail Park.

The ceremony was performed by Mayor of Evesham Cllr Fred Kaler and soon shoppers were packing into the store's 16 departments, which include an extensive outdoor garden centre.

Founder of The Range company Chris Dawson said: "It was great to have so many people turn up to celebrate the opening in Evesham this morning. We are certain that the new store will be a welcome addition to the local area and look forward to inviting the community down to

explore the fantastic products on offer."

The store covers a wide range of items for family living, from paint to pet food, bedding to a four person spa. The brand new Love the Outdoors

collections has everything for the home and garden this summer, from barbecues and patio sets to more unique indoor and outdoor party sets.
