A new food store is giving customers more choice in Oakham.

Central England Co-operative opened its latest branch in Braunston Road on Friday.

Along with a wide range of food and drink, the store also offers Paypoint, a cash machine and an in-store bakery.

The branch, which is on the site of the former Horseshoe Inn pub, has created 18 new jobs.

Store manager Chris Barker said: “It’s exciting. It’s been very busy and we’ve surpassed our expectations.

“It’s a lot easier for people to shop here, especially with it being on this side of the railway.”

He added: “We’ve had a very positive response from customers, saying how nice the new store is and how friendly the staff are.”

The Oakham Co-operative food store will be open every day from 7am until 10pm.
