A NEW convenience store is proving a big hit with residents after opening last month.

Bosses say the One Stop in the new 200-home Fleming Park development in Witham has received a positive response from the community.

The shop, which is the 200th opened by One Stop, offers a pharmacy service, food, drinks and essential goods.

Store boss Neel Patel said: "I wanted a reputable convenience store, that has a strong high street presence to open alongside Osbon Pharmacy. We have been absolutely delighted with how well the launch has gone and the interest shown so far.

"We’re in a great position, within a new housing development, to quickly become the hub of the community and the feedback we’re already getting from customers is delightfully positive.

"They love the new store, its brightness, cleanliness, range of offers and they’re incredibly pleased we’re now in their area.

"Thank you to the whole community for welcoming us so warmly. We look forward to serving them all for years to come."

One Stop says it will be looking to get involved with charities and community initiatives in the Witham area in the coming months.
