For months workers have been at work turning the former TK Maxx on Great Western Way into a Home Bargains.

The new store, which will include a cafe, bakery and garden centre cost £4.5m to revamp and will bring 110 new jobs to the town, with 130 staff in total.

It will finally be opening its doors to the Swindon public on Saturday at 8am.

And to mark the occasion it has donated £2,000 to local charity, Swindon Food Collective, which provides food support to those people that are facing a crisis.

Members of the public have reacted to the impending store's opening, with some welcoming it and some questioning why another bargain store is needed.

Here are some of the best replies received by the Swindon Advertiser on Facebook.

Julie Bray said: "Can't wait."

Chelsea Lane said: "We need to go Saturday when I finish work!"

Zoe Hamer said: "Looking forward to it opening."

Gill Newlands: "Please could we have one in Chippenham?"

Gavin Vanstien said: "Good for the jobs created but not excited by another one."

Fay de Neef said: "Apparently the cafe is pretty good and will be cheap too so will have to give that a go."

Kacey Turner said: "I’m a little excited [not going to lie]"

Pete Norman said: "Need to concentrate on the town centre before this.

"Joke of a town at the moment not even nice walking around the town centre everything is closed and ran down.

"Too many road works, everything looks tatty."

Malcolm D Woods said: "Shame they didn't open a store in the Brunel centre!"

Pam Perrett said: "It would have been nice if it was in the town centre."

Ben Jones said: "This was a missed opportunity for that new arcade store that opened in town.

"They could've used this space and built it outside massively, and being next to McDonald's would inevitably increase sales too!"

Shirley Burnett said: "Can't wait for it to open it is right on my door step love this store.

"I can walk to this one rather than get two buses to the other one in Stratton."

Gemma Toomey said: "£4.5 million to knock down a building and build a new building that looks pretty much exactly the same as the old building?"

Wendy Dickz said: "£4.5m for a building that is identical to the previous structure?

"Not to mention there’s another Home Bargains a few meters down the road by B&Q."

Lowrie Chellem said: "I don't understand what cost £4.5 million.

"It looks exactly the same. Commercial construction costs never seem to make much sense.

Dylan Dermody said: "4.5M on a home bargains Jesus Christ."

Antonio Falvo said: "It will take about 3 days to get in there with the traffic it will all cause!"

Joanne Scott said: "Traffic is already a nightmare on Great Western Way."

Miki Mi said: "Thank God I’m not driving around Swindon for a while.

"Traffic chaos in that area already."

James Mark Dowling said: "That roundabout gets busy enough so now they chuck a super market on it."

Maxine Clifford said: "Same products, different location.

"It’s not offering anything new is it?"

Jeanette Templar said: "Cheap and tacky."

Cherie Vedelle said: "I love Home Bargains and this store is massive so I bet it'll be a really popular place to shop.

"I'll be there on opening day if I can help it.

"Although I expect it's going to be pretty busy."
