A new store is set to open in a market town's shopping centre. 

Quality Discounts is moving into the former M&Co unit next to Argos at Fakenham's Millers Walk.

The unit has been vacant since M&Co went into administration in December 2022. 

Now, a QD "coming soon" poster has appeared in the store's window - which is set to open towards the end of May.

The new store will create new jobs for local people and details of how people can apply will be released in the coming weeks.

Nick Rubins, CEO of the QD Group, said: “We have very strong Norfolk roots.

"Our head office is located in Norwich and it’s where we opened our first store almost 40 years ago.

"We know the Norfolk market extremely well and are so pleased to be opening another QD in the county, employing local staff. There are currently 30 QD stores across the country.

“QD is still a family-run business and we look forward to continuing this ethos in our Fakenham store.

"There’s lots to do to get the new store ready but we’re looking forward to announcing more details shortly.”

The store will offer a range of homeware, gardening, pets, furniture, groceries, clothing and  cleaning supplies – all at discounted prices. 

Work is currently under way to fit out the store.

The poster in the window reads: "Hello! We are Quality Discounts and we like to say it loud and proud," the poster says. 

"We have a fantastic range of products to make your house a home, and everything for every season!

"At Quality Discounts there’s something for all the family – including the dog! As a family owned, independent store, we look forward to welcoming you soon!

"Coming soon!"
