A NEW B&Q store opens in Harrogate today on the site of the former Focus DIY.
After buying out the chain earlier this year, B&Q has kept on 28 existing staff at the Oakbeck store and created 17 new jobs.
Manager Darren Wilde said: “The team, existing and new, are excited about the store opening and serving the local community.
“We’ve had a few weeks to get to know each other and we’re really looking forward to meeting all our new customers.”
The team has spent the last few weeks taking deliveries of new stock ready for the re-opening.
