The hotly-anticipated new store, in Winterstoke Road, opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on December 1.

Weston mayor Alan Peak was on hand for the opening and was given a tour of the building by staff.

Beavers and cubs from 3rd Weston Scouts were also in attendance to celebrate opening of the supermarket.

It is the second store in the town opened by German-based food giants Lidl after the long-standing branch in Summer Lane, Worle.
