WORK is progressing on expanding a discount store.

Barrow's Home Bargains is expanding into the neighbouring Poundstretcher in Walney Road retail park.

The other discount store closed its doors in February.

The store has now been cleared and the front of the shop has been removed.

The two units are being joined together with a new entrance to Home Bargains to be built in place of the Poundstretcher store.

According to submitted plans, the work is making up a £2 million investment by Home Bargains.
