LUXURY candle creators Owen Drew have opened a new premises in Birkenhead town centre.

With more than 30 different scented candles, the new store opened its doors in Claughton Road last week.

Moving from its home in Pacific Road Business Centre, it is hoped the move will help to increase production.

Founder Drew Cockton told the Globe: "Birkenhead has had a lot of bad news over the past few years as a number retailers have shut shop and turned their back on the area.

"We are proud to be flying the flag for Birkenhead and offering customers a luxury shopping experience here in the town centre."
