The supermarket chain’s new store, which has created 100 jobs, carries thousands of food and drink products, including Waitrose’s Christmas range ready for the festive season. It also has a cafe and a John Lewis & Partners ‘click and collect’ service for online purchases.
The retailer will launch its Community Matters ‘green token’ initiative in-store, which will see £1,000 shared between three local good causes every month.
The new premises was officially opened by three local primary schoolchildren, who celebrated their birthdays on the opening date. They joined branch manager Claire Roumph; councillor Bradley Thomas, leader of Wychavon District Council; councillor Tony Rowley, chairman of Wychavon District Council; and councillor Mark Goodge, the mayor of Evesham; to cut the ribbon and mark their special days.
Waitrose & Partners has 349 shops in England, Scotland, Wales and the Channel Islands, including 61 convenience branches, and another 27 shops at Welcome Break locations.
