Jobs created after supermarket revamp
3:00pm Wednesday 2nd January 2013 in News
A £1.7 million re-development of a Malvern supermarket has created 60 jobs for local people.
Work has been taking place at Morrisons, in Roman Way, over the last few months to transform it into one of the chain’s flagship “Stores of the Future”.
Morrisons worked with Malvern’s Jobcentre Plus to recruit the 60 new staff, who have undergone extensive training in a range of traditional skills including butchery, baking and flower arranging.
Manager Steve Guoite said shoppers had been suitably impressed with the transformation.
“We have been thrilled with the response from customers to the new store,” he said. “We wanted to create the best food shopping experience for the shoppers in Malvern and something that none of our customers would have seen before yet still provide great value on all our produce.”
