In pictures: First look inside Dunstable's new Hobbycraft as doors open today

Smiling faces greeted the first customers waiting in line

The long-awaited and highly anticipated Hobbycraft store in Dunstable opened its doors to shoppers today (March 12).

And by 9am, there was a steady queue itching to see all that the new White Lion Retail Park shop had to offer.

The new store has created 13 jobs for people in and around Dunstable, who are part of a team on hand to help customers with expert craft advice and a friendly service seven days a week.

If you didn’t have a chance to get down to Hobbycraft today, there’s still a chance to get involved with the opening celebrations. This Saturday (March 16) at 9am, there will be a grand opening with live craft workshops and demonstrations, free face-painting, a Snazaroo golden ticket giveaway and goody bags for the first 100 people who turn up.
