A car has reversed through the window of the York branch of Waitrose on Foss Islands Road.
Fire crews from York, Acomb and a rescue unit from Tadcaster were called out at 4.41pm after a red Ford Fiesta was accidentally driven through the shop window.
Firefighters say it ended up in the store with shelves and debris around it.
The elderly woman driving the car was checked over by paramedics but is unhurt. A woman working in the store was left with cuts and bruises and is being treated for shock.
Waitrose has told Minster FM in a statement:
"Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured and we're very grateful to the emergency services for their prompt and expert response. We will be re-opening as soon as is safe."
