A NEW supermarket in Prestwood has welcomed its first customers after being declared open for business this week.

The ribbon was cut to officially open the Sainsbury's Local store in Wycombe Road yesterday morning.

The new store, which will provide 20 new jobs, was opened by Eilish Hudson of Barnardo's, Sainsbury's chosen charity.

Manager Chris Clements said: "I am delighted to be opening the new shop and am looking forward to welcoming our customers for the first time. I have a great team in place we are keen to play a prominent role in supporting local schools and charities in the local community."
