A grand opening will take place next month of a 99p Stores shop in Northampton’s main shopping street.

The store - which will be in the Abington Street unit formerly occupied by That’s Entertainment and, before that, Argos - is the 250th to be opened by 99p Stores, which is based in Northamptonshire.

The event will see owner Nadir Lalani open the store from 10am on August 12.

There will also be goody bags and a trolley dash.

A spokeswoman for 99p Stores said: “People have been asking us for a store in Abington Street on Facebook, as they think it’s too far to walk from Gold Street.

“It’s the perfect location for us and it happened to be available.”
