The Range is seeking permission for additional floorspace and a cafe at the store, which has been vacant since August 2016.

The chain typically offers homeware, furniture, arts supplies, appliances, clothing and a number of other products, classed as ‘bulky goods’.

Applications submitted to Chichester District Council this week are to expand the range of products allowed to be sold at the site and introduce a café.

A display area would also be added to the rear of the shop, with mezzanine flooring extended to 5,315sqm.
