The latest supermarket for Preston has opened at a retail park on the edge of the city centre.Advertisement
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.
30 new jobs have been created with the opening of the Food Warehouse.
Managing director Richard Walker said: “We’re delighted to have opened our new store in Preston. 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.”
Store manager Gareth Lee said: “Our opening day has been great fun for the whole family and our team are so excited to welcome the people of Preston to our brand new store.”
The opening hours are 8am to 9pm Monday to Saturday and from 10am to 4pm on Sundays.
It’s the latest extension to the Queen Street retail park which is seeing work continuing on extending The Range store and a new bathroom showroom is also due to open on the Brookhouse Group opened retail park.
