The 8,694sq ft store is aimed at family bulk buying, with special deals on larger packs of frozen food and some household goods.

This £750,000 supermarket has created 30 new jobs and is alongside B&M store and Sports Direct.

Manager Simon Adcock opened the doors at 9am, with about 100 shoppers queuing up to have a look.

He said: "These stores are very popular. They offer all the range of food and goods and the opportunity to bulk buy and save more money is popular.

The shop sells a lot of multi-pack items aimed at the bigger shop.  Picture: SARAH LUCY BROWNThe shop sells a lot of multi-pack items aimed at the bigger shop. Picture: SARAH LUCY BROWN
