The new Oops! store will be opening this week

A discount food retailer will be opening a new store in Preston on Wednesday 21 October.


The Oops! store will be located in Corporation Street, in the old Poundland unit.

Oops! is a new concept in food retail, offering knockdown prices for hundreds of food items. The retailer buys clearance goods from large manufacturing sites and repackages them at its base in Liverpool.

The products may have ended up in the manufacturers’ clearance section for a number of reasons, such as over-production, packaging errors, or the goods having slight imperfections.

“We believe the store will be great for the local community and we look forward to welcoming customers through the doors.

“At Oops! we save food that would usually go to landfill but is perfectly safe to eat. We see this as a sustainable business model offering tasty food at tasty prices at a time when pennies are being stretched more than ever.”
