The home, leisure and garden retailer was among the national chains previously confirmed to be part of the development in south Lowestoft, scheduled to open on the site of the former Zephyr Cams factory.

Several further retailers including a drive-through Costa, Aldi, Card Factory, Greggs and Subway are also set to move in.

Work on the multi-million pound park is in full swing and the new park, off Tower Road, is due to open in the coming months once necessary roadworks have been completed.

But doubts have arisen about The Range's involvement, with rumours circulating it has pulled out of the project.
