First published in News

ONE of Colchester’s most popular fashion stores is growing by 60 per cent.

The first floor of H&M, in Culver Square, has been opened to the public.

Work has begun on using the rest of the ground floor as shop space from next month.

The expansions will see the retailer, based in the former Woolworths unit since March 2010, grow to 27,000ft, creating up to 15 jobs in the process.

Boom! ! ! ! Sure poor quality clothing in a poor quality of life or existence.
Is it not far better to save up and get one or two bits of top quality clothing than buy a loads of tops that are ten a penny.
I never get why the cupboards are stuffed with a multitude of cheap junk, when you can have a couple of tops that are the business and look it, for a reasonable price.
I am all for business and commerce and well done to the precinct.
