Celebrations also took place at Worcester children’s charity New Hope which has been named as the store’s charity of the year and will benefit from the store’s fund-raising events over the next 12 months.

“We’re excited to be part of the Worcester community, supporting amazing local charities such as New Hope, and we can’t wait to get to know our local customers,” Mr Ling said.

Emma Ross, said: “The atmosphere today been brilliant. I’ve come here with my mum and daughter Aura to stock up on all of our favourite products.”
