Barker & Stonehouse to continue southern push on Boxing Day
Barker & Stonehouse’s second store in the south-east of England will open on Boxing Day.

The store has 42,000sqft of sales space over to floors and will employ 25 staff. A further 10 jobs will be created at its Crawley warehouse.
The chain has invested £10m in the store, which is located on the site of the town’s former fire station.
