A store spokesman said: 'The store was very busy with Christmas shoppers and the customers were treated to some superb festive singing by talented students from Cantor academy choir.

'The live reindeer also proved to be particularly popular with the children. Many also delighted in meeting Father Christmas in his grotto while the adults took advantage of our houseplant gift-wrapping service and a Christmas raffle.'
