SEVEN jobs have been created with the opening of a new furniture superstore in Titchfield.

Carpet Barn and The Bed Store, which already has branches in Eastleigh and Poole, now occupies a 15,000sq ft unit in Southampton Road.

The store opened this summer following a month’s refurbishment of the empty shop.

Darren Ironside, director of the family-run business, said: ‘We’ve been looking for a suitable fourth store in the south for some time and with its high visitor numbers and large space, this retail park in Titchfield really stood out.

‘Despite the recession, we’re determined to continue to invest, expand and create new job opportunities.’
