A home improvements and building supplies chain is set to open a new store in Suffolk.
Wickes Building Supplies says its new 20,000sq ft store in Newmarket on Willie Snaith Road will open on May 30.
The move is set to create 30 jobs.
Wickes, the second largest home improvement retailer in the UK, has more than 220 stores across the country.
The latest store will have a 20,000sq ft internal sales area, a 5,000sq ft mezzanine for its kitchen and bathroom ranges and a 5,000sq ft outdoor area for building and garden projects.

Wickes said the store provides “an interesting smaller blueprint for all future Home Improvement stores”.
The Wickes development represents first phase of a new retail scheme being undertaken in Newmarket by developer Hamilton Land. The store is located off the A14 via Fordham Road, a main arterial road into town.
