The home, leisure, and garden retailer is staying tight lipped over the exact location but strong rumours persist that the new store will be at the old Wilko site.
Coun Jason Zadrozny (Ash Ind), Ashfield Council leader, said, “Since the closure of Wilko in Hucknall,we have been focused on securing a new retailer for this key anchor site.
"We are not in a position yet to make any announcement on the future of the old Wilko site.
"That said, residents can look forward to an exciting, formal announcement next week.”
Coun Lee Waters, who represents Hucknall Central on Ashfield Council and Hucknall South on the county council, added: “The Range is a major UK retailer and the fact that they are now advertising jobs in Hucknall reflects major confidence in Ashfield.
" We are looking forward to formally announcing a great new partnership with The Range imminently including the location of the site which is excellent news for Hucknall.”
