A MAJOR retailer has revealed the opening date for its new store in Paisley.

Bonmarche will open in the Piazza shopping centre on Friday, September 22, at 10am.

We previously reported the ladies' clothing giant closed down its old store in the centre earlier this year, due to the lease expiring.

After hearing the news of its return, residents have expressed their excitement for the store's reopening on social media.

One said: "What delightful news."

Another added: "Great news!"

While a third said: "I'm so happy they are opening again - the staff were so helpful."
