SHOPPERS have flocked to a new bargain store which has opened in an empty unit on a retail park.

Farmfoods has been welcoming hundreds of shoppers in the first few days since it opened its doors on Friday (June 17).  

The opening has brought with it about 20 new jobs to the city after it opened in the former Staples stationery unit.

Shoppers flocked to the store to see what deals are up for grabs and stock their trolleys with essential items.

Kayla Kelly said: "I have kids so it's great for me. I'll be here regularly, it opened on Friday and this is my second time. 

"I used to go to the one in Kiddy but this one is much bigger than the one in Kidderminster. 

"Some of the deals are really good, but for others, you have to watch the prices.

"In Iceland, it would be a pound, but here it's £1.29."

Sheron Vernon said: "Some of the deals are quite good. I've picked up some nice milkshakes."
