Surprise in store for Eileen.

LONG-serving Nuneaton shop worker Eileen Young turned up for work as usual - and was handed a pair of scissors to perform a VIP duty.

She was given the task of cutting the ribbon to reopen the refurbished Boots store in Market Place.

Eileen, aged 46, who lives in Caldwell, Nuneaton, has worked at the store in the town centre for nearly 31 years - she joined as a 16-year-old after leaving Nuneaton's George Eliot School.

When Eileen, who has spent the last 15 years behind the photographic counter, cut the ribbon on Saturday she said: "I think it was nice of them to ask me to do it."
