Eager shoppers queue for opening store

First published in Local News

SHOPPERS queued for hours to see the opening of a new store.

Up to 100 people were waiting outside Yours, in Eastgate shopping centre, Basildon, from 8am this morning.

There were whoops and cheers of delight when the shutters were opened at 10am to a crowd of customers.
