Superdrug has been trading in Roman Road Market in Bow for more than 25 years—but sales floor space wasn’t matching customer trents.

The company shut the branch for several weeks while giving it an extensive makeover and extended it by 1,235 sq ft.

The first customer through the door this-morning was handed a bouquet of flowers by branch-manager Krishna Madathil.

“We are excited to unveil our new store,” he said. “We’ve been trading for 25 years in the heart of our community and now look forward to customers coming back to check out our new look.”

The store has more than doubled in size and now stretches to 2,683 sq ft, ready to cope with rising numbers of shoppers as the famous thoroughfare that looks eastward to the Olympic Park half-a-mile away joins London’s trendy shopping list.

The company is now promoting online shopping with facilities to collect products at the revamped E3 store.
