A NEW store will create 80 jobs in Thurrock.

The 31,200 sq ft store will be spread over two floors and sell home furnishings.
There will also be a custom-made curtain department, cook shop and a craft department at the store which will be open seven days a week.
Online orders will also be available to be collected from the Thurrock store.
