Tesco has pushed back the official opening of its Furze Platt Express store by another day.
It is now due to take place at 9.30am tomorrow (Thursday, June 5), where a ribbon will be cut and £500 will be donated to a local charity.
The store in Furze Platt Road, which is in the former Golden Harp pub building, opened for business at 8am this morning.
It was originally due to open yesterday (Tuesday, June 3).
The opening of the store has sparked controversy among residents living nearby who have been campaigning for more than 18 months to stop the supermarket giant from moving in.
All lines are currently blocked between Reading and London Paddington stations due to a person being hit by a train.
