A supermarket giant is expanding into Rhyl with the opening of its second store next month.

Iceland's new frozen food retail outlet at Clwyd Retail Park, located on the A525 between Rhyl and Rhuddlan, is set to open its doors at 8am on Tuesday, July 31,

The addition to Clwyd Retail Park is part of a new generation of more than 60 revamped and refurbished Iceland outlets, began in 2016, with the Rhyl store being only the second 'concept' store purpose built as part of the business wide upgrade.

Neil Hayes, Iceland’s merchandising and format development director, said: “The success of our new concept stores has given us the confidence to open completely new Iceland stores, like this one in Rhyl.

These next generation 'concept' stores offer a more modern and appealing store layout and design, a new style of fascia and

frontage, digital signage, LED lighting, improved in-store navigation, and new checkouts.

“Rhyl has a special significance for Iceland as it was the site of our second ever store, opened by our founder Sir Malcolm Walker in 1971. It was also the home of our first head office and cold store. We moved down the road to our current base on Deeside Industrial Park in 1979, but we remain strongly committed to North Wales as one of the region’s largest employers."

The new store represents an £800,000 investment in Rhyl by Iceland, creating 30 new jobs in addition to the existing Iceland store in the White Rose Centre and 300 new jobs being created at Deeside this year at a new regional distribution centre.
