Premises on Five Ashes Road in Westminster Park have undergone a £100,000 make-over to become a new base for Chatwins - adding to its stores in Hoole, Upton, Blacon, Lache and Northgate Street in the city centre.

Owner Edward Chatwin said: "We had been supplying the previous shop “Aldente” for several years so when we heard he was looking to sell the business we thought it would make an ideal location for one of our shops. There was already a quality Butchers, Fishmongers and Greengrocers…the parade of shops was just missing a Baker.

"It's the latest in the Chatwins portfolio to carry our new branding and the response has been terrific
"For weeks people on around Westminster Park have shown genuine interest in the works, asking about when we were going to open and the products we would sell.

The shop offers traditional Chatwins bakery products as well as a hot roast carvery and sandwiches made to order.
