HUNDREDS of people queued outside Spudshed’s newest store in Midland this morning to fill their trolleys with bargains and a free bag of potatoes for the opening day of trading.

Helen Hatzis said she had been to the opening of every one of Spudshed’s 10 stores in Perth.

“I know all of the Spudsheds from Morley to Kelmscott to Innaloo,” she said.

“The food here is so much cheaper and nicer than what you get at other places.”

The store, which will operate 24/7, will be giving away a 1kg bag of spuds to every customer that walks through the door from Thursday to Sunday.

The opening day coincided with Tony Galati and his son’s battle to grow the biggest mo’ to support a bro this month for Movember.

Mr Galati, who is an ambassador for the event, said the Foundation’s number one goal was to stop men dying too young.

“This is my third Movember and be prepared because I’m growing as many different mos as I can,” he said.

“I’m raising funds to tackle and raise awareness for these very serious health issues faced by men including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and poor mental health.

“Help me stop men dying too young.”

The Movember Foundation is the only global charity focused solely on men’s health.

Men start November 1st clean-shaven and grow only a moustache for the month.
