THE NEW Waitrose supermarket set to open on the Old Market site in Hereford will provide the city with up to 150 jobs when it opens in April.

The high street giant will continue accepting applications until the closing date tomorrow (January 10) and is encouraging as many people as possible to apply.

Waitrose, which will be on the north-west corner of the site, was one of the multi-million pound development’s ‘cornerstone’ companies that helped secure the project, along with Debenhams and Odeon.
