New store to give Southend high street much needed boost

Furniture and homewares retailer Dunelm has earmarked a potential new store in Southend.

Plans for the signage at the store, which is situated in the Royals and takes the place of the former Primark store, have been backed by Southend Council.

There has been no official confirmation on a potential opening date, but the council see the new store plans as a major boost to its high street.

It is hoped that the new store will be ready to launch following the latest lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
