The new Argos store at the Willow Brook Centre, Bradley Stoke

The new Bradley Stoke Argos store, due to open at 9am on Saturday (26th November), is offering a free £10 voucher to the first one hundred customers on its first day of trading.

Fitting out of the store, located at the Willow Brook Centre between Brantano and Peacocks, is now nearing completion and Argos lorries were observed at the back of the premises last week, delivering stock.

The 8,000 sq ft unit has been fitted with a mezzanine floor, which will be used as a stock room – along with the rear section of the ground floor.

The sales area includes a jewellery counter on the left hand side, with the collection counter situated towards the rear.

Around 40 new jobs have been created at the new store, according to an earlier press release put out by the Willow Brook Centre.

Argos begins recruitment for new Bradley Stoke store

Posted on Wednesday 5th October 2011 at 10:43 am by SH (Editor)


Catalogue retailer Argos has begun recruiting staff for its new Bradley Stoke store, due to open at the Willow Brook Centre in late November.

The new store will occupy unit 3 of the retail terrace, between Brantano and Peacocks, which is currently having an additional ‘mezzanine’ floor installed to function as a stock room.

An advertisement on the Argos Careers website says the retail group is looking for Delivery Assistants, Stock Room Assistants and Customer Advisors to join the team at its new store.

Customer Advisors are expected to have “fantastic communication skills” and a “great telephone manner”. Previous experience in the retail industry is said to be desirable but not essential.

Stock Assistants will be responsible for dealing with deliveries and “putting stock away on a timely basis and in priority order”. Applicants will need to be “aware of the importance of health and safety”.

It is understood that around 40 new jobs will be created at the new store.

The closing date for applications is Friday 14th October 2011.

Argos to open “before Christmas” in Bradley Stoke

Posted on Monday 26th September 2011 at 1:56 pm by SH (Editor)


Bradley Stoke’s Willow Brook Centre has announced that Argos has completed contracts on an 8,000 sq. ft. unit that is set to open in late November, in time for Christmas.

The new store will occupy unit 3 of the retail terrace, between Brantano and Peacocks.

Scott Lahive, Manager of the Willow Brook Centre said:

“We will be delighted to see Argos open here in Bradley Stoke.”

“It’s also good news for all our tenants to see the Centre fully let in retail terms.”

A press release put out today by the Centre describes Argos as: “a well-established, unique retailer recognised for choice, value and convenience. It sells general merchandise and products for the home and, on average, 18 million UK households, or around two thirds of the population, have an Argos catalogue at home at any time.”

Following the re-opening of the Santander agency branch last week, this latest news means that the Centre will have 100% retail occupancy by the end of 2011, just over three years after its official opening in October 2008.
