TEN new jobs will be created when a new supermarket opens next week.

A new Co-op food store will open its doors in Front Street, in Burnopfield, near Stanley on Thursday.

The company has spent more than £500,000 in converting the 3,000 sq ft convenience store, which will be officially opened by children from Burnopfield Primary School.
