A new food store in Park Royal where all the items are just 25p each has been forced to temporarily close after it sold out of all its stock.
Shoppers have flocked in their droves to the first ever easyFoodstore on the North Circular Road, striping its shelves bare since it opened on Monday.
Established by EasyJet founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannauhas, the store has a limited and basic range of items for sale includes chicken curry, pasta sauce, mixed vegetables, sardines in oil, sugar and button mushrooms.
A notice on the store’s website informs shoppers that it will be closed all day today and will reopen tomorrow to allow time to replenish its stock.
Sir Stelios is hoping the pilot store will be a recipe for success and will become as popular as budget supermarkets Aldi and Lidl.
He said: “This is another way the easy brand can serve the less well-off.
“Given my experience in distributing food for free in Greece and Cyprus, this is a more commercial attempt to sell basic food for 25p per item to those less well-off in the Park Royal area.”
