The 50,000 sq. ft store will create around 150 store jobs across a range of roles and levels.

Work has now started on the roofing and the build will also soon have a shop floor, with the concrete slab expected to be poured in the coming days.

The store will offer customers a range of food and non-food products, its clothing range Tu and Habitat home products.

There will also be an eat-in space, a large car park and a new Sainsbury’s petrol filling station.
