ESSEX-based electrical retail group Stellisons has announced plans to open a major superstore in Ipswich.

The company is taking Unit 5 on the Orwell Retail Park, off Ranelagh Road – next door to the Matalan store – with the 32,000sq ft showroom due to open in the spring.

It will offer a wide range of home appliances, computers, home entertainment and built-in products from leading manufacturers such as Neff, Bosch, Miele, Zanussi, Panasonic, Sony, Samsung, LG, Acer, Asus, Blomberg and many more.

There will also be a home networking area and full demonstration facilities on all product categories.

Managing director Steve Scogings said: “Our aim is to make this a real interactive store that people will travel miles to come to.

“On top of the incredible and diverse range of electrical products that we will have in store, we will also have over 20 kitchen displays with a mixture of traditional and contemporary designs, and a fabulous range of fitted bedrooms to choose from. We plan to have in-store cookery demonstrations, celebrity guests and much more. All in all, East Anglia will never have seen a store quite like this.”

The new store will create a number of jobs locally, with Stellisons currently recruiting for a wide range of positions.
