Eagle-eyed shoppers in the city centre may well have noticed a new addition to Gallowtree Gate – in the form of a dedicated Christmas shop.
The Original Christmas Shop has popped up in the former home of the O2 store, which closed last year.
The new store is full of festive products, from cards and gift wrap to reindeer antlers and glittery glasses.
A walk round the shop is sure to get you feeling in the Christmas spirit – and there are only 71 days to go until Christmas Day!
