Crowds turned up in their droves and queued for up to three hours for the official opening of H&M’s new Livingston store on Saturday.

Shoppers received goody bags and wrist bands for 25% off and were entertained by an H&M team dance to celebrate the opening at The Centre shopping mall. A live DJ also provided the soundtrack to the day.

The new larger store, which has been relocated in the former BHS store features Ladies, Divided, Men’s and Kidswear ranges.
