The 9,662 sq ft supermarket opened its doors yesterday, creating 30 jobs.

Store manager Charlotte Hughes said: “Our opening day has been a great success and the whole team has really enjoyed meeting people from our local community. I am really proud of the whole team.”

Staff have already given a donation to the city's Laughing Duck café, which was forced to close after a fire early last month and is now functioning from a catering trailer outside the premises. It has been given £250 worth of shopping to help out its chosen charities including the St Giles Hospice and Macmillan Coffee Morning.

Nick Shalts, owner of the Laughing Duck, said: “We’re delighted to be back open now and are thrilled with the donations The Food Warehouse has made on our behalf. We’re a thriving cafe and helping those in need and the local community is extremely important to us.”

Launched five years ago, The Food Warehouse now has more than 120 stores across Britain with significant growth plans for the year ahead.

Kristian Barrett, operations director for The Food Warehouse, said: “We’re delighted to have opened our new store in Lichfield. The Food Warehouse is an innovative store format, responding to the changing needs of shoppers by offering amazing bulk-buy deals and homeware offers alongside a fantastic range of frozen, fresh and chilled foods.”

The Lichfield store's opening hours are Monday to Saturday, 8am to 8pm, and Sunday from 10am to 4pm.
