Regular visitors to the store can see that the shop is a lot brighter now.

Store manager Kitty Lewis said she and her team are excited about the new look of the shop as it offers more items to the customers.

She said: “There are more of everything. More popular culture products, more records and more T-shirts.

"For regular customers, it could seem that the store has become smaller, but it is actually because the shop has a lot more merchandise now.”
