It is hoped the new store, based in the town’s Westgate Shopping Centre, will be the catalyst that helps revitalise the town centre.

The H&M store has created about 20 new jobs and occupies a sales area of about 1,500 square metres spread over two floors, offering collections for women, men, teens and children.

Anyone in the queue prior to opening received 25% off in store all day.
