Mary Escott, 47, of Horsham, said: “It’s a completely different look and feel.

“We’ve got [dress-making] classes starting upstairs so it’s much more about doing things with community.

“I really want to thank all my staff who’ve worked so incredibly hard over the last couple of days in helping me get it to this stage.”

Philip Circus (Con, Chanctonbury), chairman of Horsham District Council, officially opened the store.
