Shropshire-based independent supermarket Stans Superstore has opened a new café in its new 5,000 sq ft extension.

The shop is serving bakery items and hot meals. Seasonal items, cards and gifts and a customer service desk will also be available at the extension, which marks the retailer's 60th anniversary.

Partner Andrew Faulks said all building work would be completed by the official opening scheduled for 4 July.

Sales at the revamped café had already trebled that of the old one.
