NEW store Boyes opened its doors in March on Friday.
The department store has replaced Westgate on Station Road and promises to stock a massive range of products.
It was opened on Friday morning by general manager Sharon Lee and marked its first day of trading by staying open late for the Christmas lights switch-on.
The influx of shoppers on Friday continued over the weekend for a very successful first few days.
Mrs Lee said they were very busy and added: “We’ve been very pleased with the customer feedback. It’s been amazing.”
All the staff at the store have been newly employed by Boyes from around the local area.
