The branch is part of the company’s ongoing £1.3 billion expansion and regeneration plans across the country, and will create around 40 new jobs.

The new supermarket will feature a 1,309 square metre sales area, along with facilities including an in-store bakery, customer toilets, 163 car parking spaces and ample parking for bicycles.

The store opening times will be 8am-10pm from Monday to Saturday, and 10am-4pm on Sunday. To mark the opening customers will be able to find exclusive deals and offers on selected products.

"We have received overwhelming support from local residents.

"We would like to thank everyone who has played a part in delivering this new store."
