A branch of frozen goods retailer Iceland is set to open inside The Range in Colchester.
The Cowdray Road branch – which opens on Friday, September 18 – will sell the complete Iceland offering, including fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy, meat and store cupboard staples.
The Range – a 180-strong retail chain selling DIY, hardware, petcare and cleaning products - is owned and run by entrepreneur and self-made billionaire Chris Dawson, having started life as a market stall in south-west England.
