With the country in the grips of the coronavirus pandemic, it is great to see that a new, family owned and run business is opening despite the turbulent climate we find ourselves in.

Mrs Annadene Vanhorne, along with her partner and sons will be officially opening their new shop, M & M Afro Caribbean Supermarket in Thornton Heath CR7 7JA (What an appropriate postcode for this new venture!) on Saturday 18th July at 10am.

As you can see, they’ve been working hard these last few weeks to ensure that all of their stock is prepared and in place with the help of Wanis' Commercial Director George Phillips and Community Brand Ambassador, Paul Harrison, who will also be there with the family to welcome the former Mayor of Croydon, Cllr Kabir, to officially cut the ribbon and open the supermarket for business.


Everyone is welcome at the launch of this new local business, which is located at 72 Brigstock Road Thornton Heath CR7 7JA, where there will be light refreshments available after the opening.
