Queues at Yate Riverside to see new store

THE third and final major retailer at Yate Riverside has opened, with TK Maxx joining Next and Pets at Home at the complex.
Six-screen Cineworld is at the heart of Riverside, where there are also a number of restaurants creating an extension to the main Yate Shopping Centre.
The latest store in the TK Maxx clothing and homeware chain covers 22,000 sq ft and keen shoppers queued up to be first inside on opening day.
Andrew Lowrey, Yate Shopping Centre manager, said: “T K Maxx will be a tremendous boost to the centre, being a well-known high street name, and will complement the existing shops.
“When we did our survey work back in 2008, local people were asking us to incorporate more fashion and now we have a diverse range of outlets suiting all ages, styles and budgets.
“The summer months have been very busy, with footfall showing an increase over last year as the centre now begins to settle down after several years of building and development and a packed summer activity schedule.
“Already we have three interested parties taking short-term leases for the Christmas period - The Christmas Shop which will occupy The Entertainer unit, Calendar Club and Giftbox. “
He said a date had already been set for the launch of the centre’s Christmas schedule on November 10.
