A new Cancer Research UK superstore will soon open at the former Argos unit at Westwood.
The charity has submitted an application for new signs to go on the unit at Westwood Gateway retail park.
Work has been taking place with Thanet job centres to recruit for 20 staff to man the new store which is due to open in mid to late March.
Argos closed at the site to move into Sainsbury’s at Westwood after a review of the chain store’s business in 2019.
The Cancer Research UK superstore will stock clothing, accessories, books, DVDs and CDs, homewares, furniture and small electricals all under one roof.
Most items will be £5 or less (apart from furniture, electricals and new goods) and each Cancer Research superstore is up to four times bigger than its high street shops.
All of Cancer Research Superstore have their own community space and people can ask in store how they can use these.
Job roles are still being advertised with a March 6 deadline. Find details at https://cancerresearchuk.wd3.myworkdayjobs.com/en-US/External_Careers/jobs
