The retailer is planning to open a purpose-built 24,000 sq ft store on the site of the former Bridge Inn pub off Childwall Valley Road.
The store is planned for the one-acre site which currently houses the derelict pub, which is due to be demolished to make way for the scheme. There is also a William Hill bookmakers’ shop on the site, but this is described as “dated and inefficient” and will also be knocked down.
The 24,000 sq ft unit will also include 100 parking spaces, with access via Childwall Valley Road with HGVs exiting via King’s Drive.
TJ Morris, Home Bargains’ parent company, has now put forward an application for the store to Liverpool City Council.
WPL is the architect; in planning documents the company said the scheme would aim to “revitalise and uplift the vacant site, providing local residents with choice and quality of provision as well as creating new full and part-time jobs”.
Home Bargains already operates a nearby store at Belle Vale Shopping Centre; elsewhere in Liverpool, the company is also building a megastore on Speke Boulevard.
