A new Herons Food store is opening at Mountbatten Shopping Centre in Hebburn.

Store manager, Debra Storey, who has worked for Heron Foods for over 21 years, said: “We are building on our existing reputation in the area and improving our offering to customers with an expanded grocery range."We look forward to welcoming new and existing customers when we reopen on Thursday, May 27.”

The new store, located at Unit 17-21 in the shopping centre, will be open Monday to Saturday from 8am to 6pm. On Sundays it will be open from 10am to 4pm.

The deadline for comments on the application is May 13.

Visitors to the Heron Foods Limited Facebook page will also have the opportunity to choose their favourite charity who will be given £250 as a thank you from Heron Foods.

It is the latest new-look Heron Foods store in South Tyneside, with the company’s branch at The Nook reopening after a makeover in July 2020.

The new Heron store in Hebburn is one of a number of improvements coming online at the Mountbatten Shopping Centre, which was renamed when new owners took charge in 2016.

A meeting in October 2019 heard how the owners had dropped rents to try and provide extra incentive for potential newcomers, conceding more recognisable names were needed to attract more customers.
