Ground preparation started earlier this year on unit one, which is to be occupied by the Merseyside-based firm. Home Bargains, which has more than 570 stores across the UK, boasts an annual turnover of more than GBP3billion. David Milloy, managing director of Miller Developments, said: "Omega has already brought significant benefits to Warrington since we first broke ground 10 years ago.
