HERON Foods will be opening a new store in Bradford next week, which will include a Post Office.

The new Allerton Road store in Allerton, which was a former Co-op, opens for the first time on Thursday, November 26 at 8am. It will introduce the latest Post Office to be co-located within one of Heron Foods’ stores and puts it firmly at the heart of the community.

The opening of the store will secure 12 existing jobs with staff transferring from the former Co-op store, as well as create four new positions in both full-and part-time roles.

On opening day, the store will be offering a scratchcard-style giveaway to the first 250 customers with top prizes worth £50 to be found, and other prizes including £5 vouchers, product vouchers, and £1 off £10 spend coupons.

Visitors to the company’s Facebook page facebook.com/heronfoodslimited will have the opportunity to choose their favourite charity who will be given £250 as a thank you from Heron Foods.

Alan Quantril, store manager, said: “We’re thrilled to be launching a new store including a Post Office in Allerton and look forward to welcoming customers through the doors.

“Our new Allerton store will be a great location for us and we’re proud to be able to offer local people the best choice of goods at exceptionally low prices.

“I’d personally like to thank colleagues for their efforts in getting the new store ready, as well as our new neighbours who have already shown support.”

Allerton Post Office will operate Monday to Friday: 9am – 5.30pm, and Saturday 9am to 2.30pm. The store has ample free car parking spaces and an indoor cash machine.
