Warehouse shopping club JTF has opened its latest store in Morely.
Well-known faces from the city attended the opening event, including Leeds Rhinos legend, Keith Senior and club mascot, Ronnie the Rhino.
They gathered in the warehouse to cut the ceremonial ribbon alongside JTF’s CEO, Paul McClenaghan and store manager, Gary Clark.
Leeds College of Music also took part in the celebrations and provided a quartet to perform a range of Christmas carols to get shoppers feeling festive.
JTF is committed to supporting the local community and so warehouse manager, Gary, made a number of cheque donations throughout the day, including Leeds Rugby Foundation, a charity that uses sport to make a lasting impact on individuals in the community.
A donation was also made to Leeds College of Music to help support local students.
The 38,990 sq ft warehouse offers customers top branded products with huge savings on the RRP.
The new site has replaced the Gelderd Cross JTF Warehouse and offers customers an extended product range and an improved shopping experience.
With a huge selection of home and garden essentials under one roof, the new store offers shoppers in Morley and the wider area, unbeatable value on branded seasonal products, household items, food and drink, DIY, pet supplies and toys.
Store manager, Gary, said:
“It’s great to see so many people here to share our special day with us, as the team has worked so hard to produce a fantastic store for the people of Morley and the surrounding area.
“We are opening at a very busy time of year, so not only will we be providing excellent customer service, but we have lots of great value, high quality product ranges that we hope residents will appreciate.
“I would also like to thank all of our special guests for taking the time to visit the warehouse and take part in the launch celebrations.
“My team and I hope they have enjoyed the day as much as we have.”
Rugby legend, Keith Senior, said:
“I was delighted to be invited to the launch of the new JTF Warehouse.
“It has been a great day and the warehouse is full of great products and I even became a member.
“I’d also like to say thank you to JTF for the kind donation to the Leeds Rugby Foundation- it will really make a difference to the local community.”
As it is the season of goodwill, JTF has also launched a toy collection at the warehouse.
Members of the public are invited to donate toys for Martin House Children’s Hospice at a special collection point at the store.
Gary and his team will also donate an additional £250 worth of toys as part of their commitment to supporting the local community.
