A TOWN mayor cut the ribbon to mark the relaunch of a store in Prestatyn.

On April 1, businesswoman Rhian Anstey took over the Vodafone store as a franchisee.

Cllr Anton Sampson, mayor of Prestatyn, carried out the official opening.

Ms Anstey said: “I am very excited about the new partnership in Vodafone and hope to bring a more local, friendly feel to the already welcoming store. Making the business smaller and aimed at the

local market, as well as visitors to the area, will mean we can participate in activities and really become part of the community.

"We will be holding tech days for people who want a little extra support with their devices, as well as other events throughout the year with plenty of tea and cake."

The Vodafone UK franchise programme offers entrepreneurs the chance to run their own store.
