A DISCOUNT retail shop in Halstead celebrated its first birthday with a customer giveaway and exclusive offers.

QD, located on the High Street, was rebranded from a Thing-Me-Bobs last year and marked the anniversary last weekend with a series of celebratory deals and even slices of birthday cake.

The store, which employees nine people, also gave away £10 vouchers to ten lucky customers for them to use in-store.

Before the party atmosphere kicked off, store manager Clare White said: “We are delighted to be celebrating our first birthday as a QD store.

“There is great community spirit in Halstead and we’re looking forward to marking this special occasion with our customers.

“Feedback following the rebrand has been fantastic and everyone is enjoying shopping in our new look store.”
