Robert Dyas opened a new store in Enfield’s Palace Gardens shopping centre.
Theo Paphitis commented “This is a fantastic store and we are delighted to open in Enfield Town. We will be offering something unique and so far we have been delighted with the response we have received.”
During the opening Theo rubbished claims that the high street could die out:
“It’s nonsense that there is no future for the high street. High streets are adapting and Enfield will do the same. Our shopping habits have changed almost every two years but if you want something quickly then there’s nothing better than a high street.
“There needs to be continued appeal in a high street and ensure that local authorities offer better parking and support for businesses.”
