The first customers were queueing for around 10 mins before the shop opened its doors at 9am.

By the time the shop opened around 10- 15 customers were already waiting to get into the department store.

All those entering the shop were asked to use hand sanitiser on entry and maintain a social distance throughout the store.

The first 10 shoppers to return to the store also received free gift bags.
