After opening in atria Watford yesterday, a shop has celebrated an “amazing first day of trading”.

Womenswear company Klass took over from Joules, which closed in December last year, in the shopping centre’s unit 9.

The store’s managers told the Watford Observer the launch was a success and highlighted positive comments from locals who made it down for the first day.

Klass area manager Steve Herron said: “We have had an amazing first day trading. The feedback from the customers has been incredible.

“They love the stock, price and the quality and they were raving about the store décor.”

Klass was established in 1985 and has more than 150 locations throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland.
