Convenience Store columnist Chaz Chahal has hosted a fun day to officially mark the opening of his new Simply Fresh store in the village of Inkberrow, Worcestershire. 

The 1,000sq ft store has enjoyed a significant extension and refurbishment and now offers local people a wide range of speciality and chilled foods plus hot food and drinks to go.

Scores of local people attended the event which included an official ribbon cutting by local school children.

“We also had fresh food and lots of drink and held a raffle to raise funds for the school. It was also great to see all the local Parish councillors in attendance. Despite the odd shower, the response from the locals was fantastic and the afternoon went well,” Chaz said.
