THE new H&M store officially opened today at the new MK1 shopping centre and staff are hoping for big things in the coming months.
The store became the fifth to open at the new site after Marks and Spencer, Outfit, BHS and River Island all held successful opening events.
Store manager, Rachel Wells, said: “We had more than 100 people queueing first thing this morning so that was really pleasing. This is a nice family store and we sell a lot of items.
“With the football stadium, gym, IKEA and Asda all so close we are hoping to get a lot of customers, and with MK1 offering free parking we can be one step ahead of a lot of places.”
> An official opening of the entire site will take place on Saturday, December 8, with Primark opening on December 12.
