Frustration grows at lack of progress in Brexit negotiations

Have your say

MORE than £1.3m has been spent revamping a supermarket in Horndean.

Morrisons, in Lakesmere Road, has undergone a big makeover and is relaunching today.

The store was closed throughout yesterday as builders got to work on the refurbishment.

The supermarket has been chosen to be one of the firm’s Stores of the Future.

The store now features more than 450 fruit and vegetable lines which are displayed on ice beds with misting technology.

Staff have also undergone re-training so they can advise customers and suggest cooking tips, food combinations and matching wines.

William Roe, Morrisons Store of the Future director, said: ‘We are so excited to be opening a Store of the Future in Horndean.

‘The new concept store has a fresh market feel with surprising produce and an exciting layout but still features the same great prices making it an affordable choice for both existing and new customers.

‘We wanted to create the UK’s best food shopping experience and something that none of our customers would have seen before.’

The former Safeway store was built in 1994 and later became a Morrisons.
