WORKMEN were today putting the finishing touches to Huddersfield's long-awaited Kingsgate shopping centre.
Builders have been clearing away equipment including scaffolding and ladders ready for the long-awaited opening of the centre tomorrow.
Centre manager Jonathan Hardy said: "It's all systems go. The 20,000sq ft of mall floor is being cleaned, the banners are going up and the final lick of paint is going on.
"The stores which will be opening tomorrow are fully stocked and ready for action."
Staff at Madisons, the company operating the mall cafe, were busy putting up their sign and setting out tables and chairs.
Mr Hardy said: "The final job will be to clean all the windows. That will begin later today and continue tomorrow before the official opening of the centre at 8.45am."
Following the centre's opening, actor Tom Owen will cut the ribbon to open the Beatties department store at 9am.
Other stores will open at various times during the morning, including All Sports, which has signed up former Town and England footballer Frank Worthington to kick things off, and video game and computer software retailer Game.
