Buckingham Park residents finally have somewhere to shop without leaving the estate after Budgens opened yesterday.
A number of other shops are due to open in the area, including a fish and chips store.
Branch owner Paul Wilks said everyone has been very positive about the new store.
Mr Wilks said: “People were surprised by the range of products that we do in such a small store.
“The residents that have been in Buckingham Park for some time have been waiting for a store to open so they don’t have to leave.”
The store will be offering money-off deals for the first 12 weeks after its opening to entice shoppers in.
