A HEALTH and beauty chain has opened its doors in Gosport.

National chain Savers Health and Beauty opened in the High Street last month.

The beauty, health and home products specialist has taken over the former Bon Marché shop.

The shop has created nine jobs and customers flocked to the store on its first day.
