Rent-to-own retailer BrightHouse has received applications from more than 70 people for just TWO jobs at its new store in Kirkintilloch.

The store, which opens on Thursday, November 5, in Unit 5 of The Regent Centre specialises in the sale of domestic appliances, consumer electronics and household furniture.

The two successful candidates, chosen from a shortlist of 30 people, are now preparing to open the doors to welcome the first customers to the new 750 sq ft store. An official opening will be held on Saturday, November 7.

Deputy manager Angela Cunningham said: “It’s been exciting to get to know our chosen colleagues after so many applications. We’ve got a great team in place who I’m confident will provide first class customer service to the Kirkintilloch community.”

Christopher Cole, Customer Sales Advisor, added: “I couldn’t believe how tough the competition was for the positions, and I’m really pleased to be joining the new store at the heart of the community I live in.

“We’ve just finished four weeks of training in customer service and sales, and now we can’t wait to get into the store and start getting to know our local customers.”
