A community supermarket has adjusted its opening hours to enable wider access and help tackle food poverty.

Sally's Store, in Great Yarmouth, is run by the Salvation Army. It has altered its Wednesday opening hours to provide later access.

Serving those living within the NR30 postcodes, it opened its doors in April 2022 with some 60 members.

Two years on, the membership is more than 320, enabling these individuals to purchase goods at wholesale prices or lower.

The supermarket offers a range of products from cleaning supplies and sanitary items to pet food.

The members also have access to advice on topics such as budgeting and job search through the church and charity's Employment Plus service.

Katherine Gethin, community programme coordinator for Sally's Store, said: “I have a good team around me and although we hear a lot of sad stories we know we are helping people feel happier.

"We frequently have free bread, fruit and vegetables to give away, and even flowers on occasion.

"The fact there are more sign-ups simply shows that people still need us.

"It can be daunting for people to admit that they can’t afford food but here people can choose food and not have to worry about their budget stretching.

"We are a lifeline and the more people tell us the more we can try and help.”

The store, in the Peggotty Road Community Centre, now opens from 10am to 12pm Monday to Friday, and from 3pm to 5pm on Wednesdays.

Those interested in becoming a member should take a proof of address to Sally's Store during opening hours.
