JUST after announcing 12 new jobs at Labels Outlet Shopping near Ross, retail group Rockfield says a further six posts will be created at a new home and garden store on the site.

Managing director Rachel Addison this week heralded the latest venture in addition to the launch of Labels' new food hall and seafood bar.

"As fellow, well-established and highly regarded independent organisation, we are delighted to welcome Rockfield to Labels," she said.

"We're all working very hard behind the scenes to ensure the new home and garden store is open in time for Easter."

Rockfield's managing director, Leon Wolverson, says his new partnership with Labels is an "ideal opportunity" between two privately-owned and managed businesses.

"Everyone at Rockfield is very excited about the launch at Labels, of what will be, in effect, our third store", he said. "Labels has an enviable reputation as a well-run, progressive retailer, and has a superb location, at the end of the M50, which is absolutely perfect."
