QUEENS ROAD store and post office in Royston has undergone a facelift after being the victim of a ram raid in June.
Owners News Plus has spent "thousands of pounds" installing a new front and refurbishing the interior of the shop.
Joint manager Eddie Seekings said: "Parts of the shop were demolished in the raid, so it has cost News Plus thousands of pounds to put right.
"The store has been transformed into one of the most inviting shops in the neighbourhood."

Mr Seekings said he had had a lot of support from the community during the transformation of the store," which has taken three weeks to complete.

Margaret Seekings, who is also joint manager, said: "We've been open throughout the repairs.
"It's been a bit hectic, but luckily it's the summer holidays so the children haven't been around as much.
"I think they've done a great job - the shop seems so much bigger even though we've got more products in than we had before.
"So far we've had a lot of positive comments from our customers.
