Work is underway to create a new look Morrisons store which will lead to the creation of 150 new jobs and provide essential community services. The news follows the opening of a Morrisons petrol station earlier this summer at the entrance to the scheme.
Jerry Hatch, Centre Manager at Dalton Park, said: “We are delighted to confirm that Morrisons will be opening a store at Dalton Park before Christmas this year.
“A lot of hard work has been carried out behind the scenes in recent months and the announcement today is testament to the efforts of several parties.
“The new Morrisons store will create significant job opportunities, which would be fantastic in normal times, so to be able to announce this during the current climate is very uplifting.”
A spokeswoman for Morrisons said: “Following the successful launch of our petrol station, we now plan to open the Morrisons Dalton Park store by the end of this year. Specialist teams are working to transform the unit into a new look Morrisons store and recruitment for around 90 new colleagues will start shortly. We would like to thank the community for their continued patience and look forward to welcoming them to the store.”
