QD Stores opens first new Thingmebobs outlet
East Anglia based value retailer QD has opened its first new high street outlet under the Thingmebobs brand.
Acquired by QD Commercial Holdings in January 2013, Thingmemobs has 11 stores across East Anglia with logistics provided by a 200,000 sq ft distribution facility at Snetterton.
QD opened the latest Thingmebobs branch in the Norfolk market town of Swaffham last week after a month-long refurbishment of the site. A staff of seven include ex-employees of former tenant Stead & Simpson together with new hirings.
Operations director David Haycox said: “Customer members into this site has been above average with very positive feedback particularly relating to value for money, range, and location.
“It is clear that consumer demand for a highly varied product offer at low cost and available on town centre high streets remains strong in market towns and we welcome the opportunity to take on more units like Swaffham from landlords with currently unoccupied retail space.”
Norwich-based QD operates 49 sites under its QD Stores, Cherry Lane Garden Centres, Thingmebobs and Lathams store brands as well as a transactional site launched earlier this year.
