Following the opening ceremony, store manager Matthew Bryan said: “The opening has been a huge success. We had crowds waiting outside to bag a bargain before we opened, and we’re really delighted with the brilliant response.”

The 6,000 square foot store, next to Boots, is offering shoppers 5,000 different products, including a new Miss Beauty London makeup range, all priced at £1.
