SUPERMARKET giant Morrisons is urging shoppers to come to see its plans for a new mid-sized store on the outskirts of Wallingford.
A public exhibition is being staged over two days to show residents what the foodstore will look like.
Morrisons say the store on the Hithercroft industrial estate will provide more than £25m of investment, with a new four-pump filling station and a shoppers’ car park featuring 280 spaces.
The supermarket is expected to create about 300 full and part-time jobs.
The exhibition will take place at Wallingford Methodist Church Hall in St Leonard’s Square on Friday, September 14, from noon until 6.30pm, and at Centre 70 in Kinecroft on Saturday, September 15, from 11am to 5pm.
Morrisons bosses say there are no artists’ impressions yet of what the store would look like but they will be available at the exhibition.
Morrisons development executive Andrew Birtwhistle said: “Getting the public’s feedback, opinions and ideas is a crucial part of the development process.”
