If you've been looking forward to the grand opening of Geek Retreat in Stevenage, then you'll have to wait a little longer.

The highly-anticipated shop was due to open on May 28 but it has been pushed back to allow more time to make it ready for visitors.

Customers can play a variety of board games when the store finally opens its doors on June 18.

Owners, Dan Sullivan and Kim Stevenson want Geek Retreat to be "perfect" for visitors instead of rushing to open this weekend.

They said: "We've taken the difficult decision to postpone our grand opening weekend to Saturday, June 18.

Cosplayers are encouraged to attend the grand opening and they will receive a free milkshake.

"We want Geek Retreat Stevenage to be perfect from the get-go and there are a few bits that just won't be there for the current date."

The grand opening promises to be a spectacular event with free milkshakes up for grabs for those who attend in cosplay.
