THIRTY jobs are set to be created in Belper, after B&M Homestore finalised the takeover of the town’s former Focus store.
The large 30,000 square foot store and garden centre will open for trade on June 9.
The Chapel Street building has sat empty since Belper’s Focus DIY store was closed in May last year with the loss of 22 jobs.
Carl Allen, Operations Director for the company, said the company had been waiting for an opportunity to open in Belper for three years.
