The itinerary for the grand opening of Poundstretcher's new March store has been announced - and there are plenty of reasons to get down early.

Taking place on Monday September 4, the first arrivals to the store - located at 13/15 Broad Street - will be welcomed by a local entertainer.

They will be running games and activities with £250 worth of Poundstretcher shopping vouchers up for grabs.

At 8.45am, the store will also be running a charity trolley dash for the benefit of March Foodbank where players will be given the opportunity to fill their trolley with as many products as possible within 60 seconds.

Then, at 9am, Mayor of March, Cllr Ms Kim French, will cut the ribbon to mark the store's official opening.
