HUGE queues and traffic jams greeted the reopening of Warrington’s IKEA store for the first time since lockdown.

The Warrington store reopened to customers at 10am this morning to be greeted by a lengthy queue.
Shoppers have posting on social media sharing images and videos of the long queues outside the store.

Meanwhile reports from other stores in the town, including Morrisons and B&M, this morning, were no queues and shoppers able to walk straight in.
