The M Local shop, in Orchard Way, will be the third branch of the chain's line of convenience stores and has created 20 jobs.
Pupils from nearby Orchard Way Primary School will cut the ribbon on the store at 9am.

"Fresh food will be at the heart of our store and we are happy that we can bring more choice of fresh food to our customers."
