Staff at the new Savers store in Yate Shopping Centre welcomed customers for the first time on Wednesday morning.

The shop officially opened on Wednesday, earlier than expected, and customers were free to browse.

Centre Manager, Andy Lowrey: “This is a big plus for Yate Shopping Centre with another major retailer bringing more variety and great offers.

"Today’s retail market is very competitive but Yate’s popularity as a prominent shopping centre still attracts new recognised high street tenants and there are more new tenants in the pipeline.

"We look forward to having Savers up and running in time for the Christmas period when it will be joined by pop-up shops making the Centre a popular attraction with its fantastic offers."
