A NEW social supermarket called Lucie’s Pantry is set to open next week in Salford.

The aim of the supermarket is to offer residents of Pendleton who are struggling to get by a sustainable food source.

The grand opening is set for Tuesday 5th December 10:30am – 12pm at 101 Fitzwarren Street.

How Lucie’s Pantry will work

Residents will have to become a member in order to use the pantry and becoming a member will be based on the needs of each person and geographical distance to the shop.

Once accepted as a member, they must pay £2.50 each week in order to shop up to a value of £15 worth of goods.
