A NEW clothing store replaces Oasis in the Market Place today.

Yours Clothing opens today in the shopping centre filling the gap left beside H&M when Oasis departed for Debenhams in June.

Yours is a plus-size retailer selling sizes 16-36 and is focusing on expansion this year opening stores in the UK and in Germany.

A spokeswoman for the company said: "We are thrilled to be opening a store in Bolton and are hugely passionate towards rapidly growing our stores within the UK along with an international focus this year.

"I wish our new Bolton team all the best for a fantastic store opening and great season of trade."

The Bolton News:

The store employs seven people who will help shoppers as they browse the clothing, lingerie, footwear and accessories on offer.

A special treat is planned for the first day with the first fifty customers through the door receiving a goodie bag and one customer will get a £50 gift card in their bag.

Yours clothing prices start at £7 for staple t-shirt and camisole tops. At the upper end they sell embellished evening dresses for £110.

Items new in for the autumn/winter season include chunky knit sweaters, checked lumberjack-style shirts and a culotte-cut striped jumpsuit.

This is the first Yours store to open anywhere in Bolton, nearby there is also one in Bury and one in Wigan.
