The highly anticipated Blackpool Smiggle shop opens its doors next week and the global stationery chain is asking Junior Gazette readers to help them celebrate the new store.

It officially opens on April 20 and one lucky Junior Gazette writer will receive a goody bag worth £40 and the chance to be a VIP guest on Saturday, April 28 at the shop inside Houndshill Shopping Centre, opposite the Disney Store.

Smiggle is asking youngsters to write, in no more than 100 words, why they love Smiggle and why they deserve the goody bag. The Australian retailer has seen booming success in the UK and the Blackpool store is just one of many new stores opening this year. Smiggle is a utopia of brightly coloured stationery, games, bags and accessories which have become a huge hit with young people.
