Harbour Road store set for official opening on Monday - with free cake and champagne!
SEATON’S town crier will ensure that the resort’s new Tesco store is something to shout about at Monday’s official opening.
David Craner will read a proclamation before town and district councillor Steph Jones cuts a ribbon to launch a new era in shopping for the resort.
The ceremony takes place at 10am - two hours after the store opens its doors to customers for the first time.
Guests at the ceremony will include the team from community group Seaton’s Voice who will be presented with £1,000 donation by store manager Ian Dyer.
He said: “The opening day celebrations promise to be something for customers and staff to enjoy.
“We will be handing out celebratory cake and glasses of champagne or orange juice to those customers who would like to join us to watch the official opening ceremony.
“We are delighted that Councillor Stephanie Jones will be officially opening the store in recognition for all the hard work she carries out to assist in regenerating the area and that the team from Seaton’s Voice will be joining us to receive a donation.
“When we heard about all the services their Memory café and other projects provide to the local community we wanted to do something to help and hope the £1,000 goes some way in assisting them.
“We are also in the process of finalising some family fun and free entertainment for customers at the store in the run up to Christmas, the details of which we hope to be able to announce shortly.”
Following the 8am opening on Monday, the store will then open from 7am to midnight Monday to Saturday and 10am to 4pm on a Sunday. The petrol station will open from 6am to midnight seven days a week.
Customers visiting the new Tesco store will have an extensive choice of food and non-food products available to them, including a delicatessen, fresh fish counter, fresh meat counter, fresh fruit and vegetables and a full in-store bakery. The store will stock Tesco Value and Tesco Finest products and will offer a range of health and beauty products, items for kitchen and home ware, toys, stationery, DVD’s, games and clothing for men, women and children. The store will also have a pharmacy, Costa Coffee and a petrol station.
