A COMIC book and TV memorabilia store is opening in Barnsley thanks to the support of locals. 

Grant Driver put a business plan together for The Comic Store and asked locals to help him win the approval of the Price's Trust by saying there was demand for it.

He earned lots of support and was given help - which means he will be opening his new shop first week in December.

He said: "I had the idea when I was looking for these types of products myself, finding that there wasn't anything local that dealt with these kinds of products.

"I did market research prior to this and an article was placed on the WAB which helped massively with the response."

The shop will be inside The Emporium on Peel Street.
