MORE jobs have been created in Basildon thanks to a new shop opening up.

Yours Clothing will open at the Eastgate Centre today after shoppers told the clothing store they wanted them to open in the town.

The business ran a survey and asked customers where in the country they should open next, with Basildon coming top.

A spokeswoman said they are opening two new stores across the country a week.

She said: “We have created 12 new jobs and we have chosen Basildon due to high customer demand.

“We asked our customers where they would like a store next and Basildon was one of the top choices.

“We haven’t had a store there before and we are extremely excited.”

Big queues are expected at the Eastgate Centre for the opening with customers being given £5 off their first purchase when they sign up to emails.

The store will sell plus size clothes in sizes 14 to 32.

Yours Clothing previously had a store in Rayleigh and one at Lakeside.
