Jobs Promise In Supermarket Plan

Monday February 24 2014

SUPERMARKET giant Aldi has revealed it plans to build a new supermarket in Royston - creating up to 40 jobs.

The company plans to apply to Barnsley Council for permission to build the store and ten houses on land on High Street, on the site of the former spring factory.

Site developers, Quora, and Aldi issued a newsletter to 1,600 residents and local business asking for their views.

Mark Taylor, property director for Aldi, said: "The development will regenerate a redundant site and provide investment including the introduction of 40 local jobs."

Anyone wishing to submit their views to developers can do so by sending an email to aldiconsultation@planningpotential.co.uk

that's THE CO-OP finished then...

I pity the poor people that live opposite the co-op when the council gives planning permission for the houses or flats that will be built on the co-op site and car park.

You mark my words.....

I agree that it is highly likely that the co-op will close. However, it is an expensive store to shop in. Some of their prices are ridiculous. Like just about everything allied to the Labour party it is uneconomic and uncompetitive and on that basis is destined to fail. Competition is good for the consumer. Well done Aldi.
