CARD Factory has announced that it is opening a store at Flintshire Retail Park – creating eight jobs.

The retailer's new branch at the Flint-based shopping park will open to the public this Friday (May 7).

The store has created eight roles, both full and part time, with the new team being led by an experienced store manager.

Card Factory’s retail director, Steve Lilley, said: "Our team have been working incredibly hard to prepare for this new opening and we’re so excited to be launching a Card Factory store in Flintshire, especially due to the difficult economic environment retailers have experienced recently.

"We’ve put together a standout team, and we can’t wait to welcome new customers into our premises at the Flintshire Retail Park on the 7th of May.

"As with all of our physical stores, safety is the number one priority as we welcome customers through our doors, so we would like to reassure everyone that we have a strict social distancing policy and regular cleaning regime to ensure the safety of both our customers and colleagues."

Card Factory’s stores offer a variety of party gifts, stationary and confectionary items, including helium balloons that can be blown up free of charge in store.

The new store is located at: Unit B, Flintshire Retail Park, Holywell Road, Flint, CH6 5GB.
