THE former Thomas Cook store in Stockton Heath has reopened as Hays Travel.

The store closed along with more than 500 others across the country in September following the collapse of the holiday firm.

But Hays Travel took the former shops on and the London Road shop is the latest to reopen. It will be open from 9.30am until 5pm, Monday to Saturday.

A spokesman said: "We would like to welcome all our customers to our new store.

"Feel free to come in and see the original staff for a catch up.

Warrington Guardian:

"We cannot wait to book and fulfill your holiday requirements soon.

"Finally, we never had the chance to thank all our new and regular customers before the collapse of Thomas Cook.

"The last few weeks have been a rollercoaster ride for us but we are back better than ever.

"Andy, Lynette and Lisa."

The store in Birchwood Shopping Centre also reopened earlier this month.
