A supermarket has created a pop up shop, which will serve as a temporary replacement for its store after it was wrecked by a fire.
The blaze broke out at the Co-operative, in Chigwell Road, Woodford Green, on August 30, which badly damaged the stock room.
The main store was forced to close, and will remain shut until late September, but inventive staff have since opened a pop up shop selling basic goods.
A spokesman for the Co-operative said: “A pop-up store offering basic essentials – open from 8am to 6pm seven days a week – will be in place at the rear of the store until we re-open.
”We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
The closest regular store is under two miles away in Fencepiece Road, Barkingside.
