The Guardian Concert Band performed as shoppers filled the store and Great British Bake Off contestant Dorrett Conway was on hand to give tips and hand out some of her tasty treats.

Graham, property director for the family-owned North West supermarket chain, previously told The Gazette about the Poulton store, situated in the Teanlowe Centre.

He said: “This has been the most ambitious project we have ever undertaken, together with our development partner Maple Grove Developments Ltd.

“It has been extremely challenging to reconcile the requirements of safety, public access and our obligation to existing shopkeepers.
