Holyhead major retail investment boost

Giant supermarket investment plans are unveiled for Holyhead, according to the Holyhead Mail (21 June). Forming part of a massive $46 million retail park investment on the outskirts of the Anglesey town, an estimated 400 jobs could be created.

Plans show a 65,000 sq ft food store which would be built on the old Hedstrom Toy factory. Anglesey County Council will look at the application this autumn.

Investors on the existing 60,000 sq ft site include Wilkinsons hardware, Peacocks clothing, Brantano shoes and fashion chain New Look. In fact, Wilkinsons are so pleased with business that they will expand by a further 7,000 sq ft.

David MacMullen, a director with Pettifer Estates, said: We want to keep [the] investment on Anglesey. He pointed to the environmental benefits from saving fuel, saying a round trip to Bangor for major shopping is about 50 miles.
