Store manager Nicola Dean said: “We’ve created 13 brand new vacancies and have employed local people from around the Ipswich area. 

“Our new team includes people of all ages and levels of experience, but the most important requirement is that they have the right attitude and can offer superb customer service. Everyone here is really looking forward to the store opening.”
