Roo’s Too opens on Gosbecks Road on Saturday, February 24, after the original Roo’s, in Short Wyre Street, closed in 2015 when its lease expired.

Now with a bigger store and a revamped name, owner Donna Savill says she is excited to return to the town where her business began.

She said: “Colchester town centre is a wonderful place to be. But we know from experience shopping with children is a bit different and we feel this is the perfect place for us. It is such a large space and we have free parking out the front, which is a real help for our customers because they can bring their babies in their car seats without disturbing them.”

She added “It will be nice to see how the kids to used to come in when they were babies have grown up.
