Tesco charity trust presents cheques for £500 to Woodfields School and the town’s Royal British Legion branch.
The opening ceremony started early last week when the the ribbon was cut at 8.00am followed by a musical accompaniment by the Sheringham Shantymen at 10.00am.
Store manager Simon Nellis presented cheques for £500 to Woodfields School and the town’s Royal British Legion branch, before customers entered the store for the first time.
Mr Nellis said that there was a positive response and he would emphasize value and support everyone the best he can.
The store front faces the town opposite Sheringham train station with a convenient pathway leading to shops in the high street.
There was an air of celebration with shops and cafes offering cakes and champagne.
Even though there is still some opposition to the store opening there was hope Sheringham will maintain it’s high street popularity in co-existance with Tesco.
Some shoppers added that it was convenient there was ample free parking with the choice of strolling into town after a visit to the store.
There was a steady flow of customers throughout the day to try out the new store and quite a few made their way to the high street afterwards.
