Bargain fever hit Ilford today when hundreds of people queued around the block for a department store sale.
Police officers helped keep crowds in line in the cordoned off queue around Bodgers in Station Road.
Products work £3,000 including clothing, furniture and electrical appliances are up for grabs at discount prices in the super sale.
The shop shut for four days so that displays could be prepared and prices reduced.
Regular customers were then allowed in for an invitation-only sale today and tomorrow.
