AN independent travel agent has opened a new store at Church Square Shopping Centre.

The ribbon at Perfect Getaways' St Helens town centre branch was cut on Saturday by former Saints player Tommy Martyn, who then shared a complimentary drink with shoppers and staff.

Steven Brogan, manager of Church Square Shopping Centre, said welcoming the travel agents was a positive way to start 2019.
