and fresh foods.

“We’re hard at work getting everything set up and ready to go and we can’t wait to open our doors to the local community.”

The Food Warehouse was introduced by the Iceland Group in 2014, with stores often double the size of traditional Iceland stores, offering a much larger range of goods, and bigger packs for better value. The stores are designed to look like a warehouse, with wide shopping aisles and large spaces.

The Northampton store will be open Monday to Saturday from 8am to 9pm, and Sunday, 10am to 4pm.

To celebrate the store’s opening, every customer in the queue before 7:45am on opening day will be given a raffle ticket which will see them entered into a free prize draw. Three lucky winners will be drawn and given the chance to take part in a supermarket sweep-style challenge where they’ll each have the entire store to themselves for 90 seconds and will get to fill their trolley with whatever they’d like.

The store will also be giving away £1,000’s worth of Iceland vouchers to the first 100 customers in the queue, plus a 1.2kg tub of Jellybeans to the first 200 customers through the checkouts.

Additional prizes up for grabs include NutriPro blenders, JML household essential hampers and air fryers.
