A NEW business stepped up to the town as it opened its doors to the public for the very first time.
Footwear chain Brantano yesterday welcomed customers from as far as Doncaster to the new store in Seamer Road Retail Park, in an official opening which kept staff on their toes.
Assistant manager Katrina Crawford said: “We pulled a lot of people in, it’s been really busy. All the staff have been hands on, they’re very pleased.
“It’s exceeded all expectations - I couldn’t tell you the amount of people we’ve had through the door!
“We’ve received all positive comments. The majority of people came from Scarborough, but there have been others from Doncaster, Wakefield and Leeds.
“It’s nice to see another big name in the area and bringing investment into the town.
“Brantano is very pleased to be in town and we look forward to continuing business.”
The shop will also be hosting various entertainments this weekend.
