Property and Acquisitions Manager at The Original Factory Shop, Mike Harrison added: “Our aim is simple, we want to reach and serve local communities and there are many towns nationwide like Brandon that lend themselves perfectly to our retail model.
“In the current climate people are without doubt tightening the purse strings and, more than ever, are looking to shop locally and seek out the good quality, value products, which The Original Factory shop is recognised and well loved for. We’d like to thank Cllr Bishop for his support with the Brandon store opening.”
