    Extensive areas dedicated to soft drinks and chilled beers are also major store features, and these are complemented by a comprehensive convenience offer of big-name brands at low prices.

    Locals queued up in their numbers on the opening day to get their tea for free as well as enjoy a free Cheeky Coffee and tasters of Clayton Park Bakery and Fazilas products.

    The Mayor of Pendle Cllr Brian Newman took hold of the Spar scissors to cut the ribbon and declare the store open, and he was joined at the opening by chairman of James Hall & Co. Ltd, Ian Hall, and company stores director, Fiona Drummond. 

    A Family Fun Day supported the opening where the local community was welcomed into store and had the opportunity to play Spin To Win free Spar products.

    David and Anne Brown live across the road from the store. They said: “We really like the layout, and the prices are excellent. It is fantastic to have the store open again, and it is very convenient for us.

    “If we can support local then we will do. Everybody knows the staff, and we were welcomed with a smile. I think the hot food will do really well, and the range of convenience meals that are stocked will be popular too.”

    Ian and Lesley Moore, who live nearby, added: “We came along while walking the dogs for a general feel for the store and we are pleased to have a Spar on the doorstep.

    “The layout is great, and it is a bright and airy store with a good range. We have been driving past every day seeing the progress in anticipation of the opening, so it is great that the day has arrived.”
