Morrisons Superstore Opens In Holyhead

by John Davies

Supermarket Giant Morrisons is about to open one of its largest stores in Britain at Holyhead on Anglesey.

The 25 million pound investment has been made on the outskirts of the town at the Penrhos Retail Estate.

Within a few minutes walk is one of its main retail competitors, Tesco.

Around 350 jobs are expected to be created, of which 50 should be managerial.

Recently the relief road linking to the A55 has been improved, with a new roundabout built near the entrance to the Penrhos Retail Estate.

This is good news for local people on Holy Island and the surrounding villages as the competition should make for better value products.

Now the town will be served by Tesco, Morrisons, Netto, Lidl and the Co-op. What more could Holyhead people ask for?

There had been a concern about securing the local electricity supply and that Morrisons would have to install a temporary diesel generator.

The good news is that supplier Scottish Power has now ensured that there is an adequate supply of power in the area to meet this new demand.

No doubt there will be special introductory offers to tempt shoppers away from the nearby Tesco.

The other current issue of concern is whether or not Morrisons will be able to build a petrol station on the site.

Local people would welcome this because at the moment Tesco have a virtual monopoly on fuel on the western side of Anglesey.

Morrisons Holyhead needs petrol station
by: Bill

I agree with other comments, this store is very good for Holyhead. Problem is that Anglesey Council haven't given planning permission for Morrisons to build a petrol station. Rumours are Tesco squashed it. I wonder why?
