A FESTIVAL Place store is set to get a dedicated homeware addition at the end of the month.

Homesense, sister brand to TK Maxx will open on Thursday, 28 March.

The new store will open within the existing TK Maxx store over a 26,585 sq. ft area, creating 20 new jobs.

The brand offers an 'off-price' concept, adding this means items cost up to 60 per cent less than recommended retail price.

A spokesperson for Homesense said: “We are delighted to be moving in with our sister brand TK Maxx and opening our first store in Basingstoke. We look forward to welcoming shoppers and helping them discover their own treasures and a huge range of unique homeware at irresistible prices.”
