Discount store Bargain Buys has opened its doors in the town with over £3,000 worth of giveaways for the first customers.

The new store, owned by Poundstretcher, opened on Tuesday at the Rosehill Centre in Felixstowe Road and sells a range of homeware, toiletries and food and drink.

To celebrate the opening there was a ribbon-cutting with the mayor of Ipswich Jane Riley and games, quizzes and prizes on offer.

The first five customers also had the chance to receive a faux leather double bed for £19.99 and the next 175 could get a washable rug for £4.99.
