Deputy manager, Lewis Harrison, said: “We had a great crowd when we had our grand opening and we had a queue of people at 7am waiting outside when we opened for business.

“It has been really positive. We’ve been able to walk around with the customers and there was a good feel to the store. We’ve had a great start – we couldn’t have wished for better.”

The new Sainsbury’s Local is on the site of the former art deco Chandos Cinema, which was demolished to make way for the new store.
