Boundary Mill Stores is planning to open their new outlet in Rotherham this September. 


As revealed on Rothbiz in January, the expanding Lancashire-based retailer is the new owner of the former Big W store at Catcliffe, which has been empty since Woolworths went into administration in 2008.

The new store is expected to create over 300 jobs with recruitment underway via Jobcentre Plus.

Boundary Mills already operate four large outlet stores and offer branded goods at discount prices. Departments include ladieswear, menswear, homewares, gifts, books, dvds, arts and crafts and perfume and cosmetics.

A number of concessions are also expected to open in the Rotherham store. These include Brook Taverner, Europe's largest and most successful trade supplier of stock-supported business clothing, and Pagazzi, the UK's largest, independently owned lighting and mirror retailer.

The 12,000 sq m store adjacent to Morrisons is currently undergoing a £5m refit and plans were recently submitted for new signage.

Boundary Mill Stores are owned by Libra Textiles Ltd who have enjoyed year-on-year increases in profits for the last 15 years and posted profits of of £18.7m for the year up to January 2012.
