Part of the Iceland group The Food Warehouse opened its doors on Tuesday (20 November) at the Queen Street retail park.

Set over 11,000 square feet it is the Iceland chain’s move into a large-space supermarket, compared to its existing site in North Road.

It also has a focus on big brand deals and bulk buying, as well as the extensive frozen range which Iceland is well known for.

Benny Mc’Nally was one of the first in and went for a look round the supermarket.
