Morrisons starts work on fitout of new Kirby store
Morrisons has commenced work on the fitout of its new store in Kirkby which is due to open later this year.
Over the next few months, Morrisons will be transforming the building into a state-of-the-art 47,100 square foot shop that will include the retailer’s Market Street food counters as well as a range of services to help customers shop for groceries both in-store and from home.
James Smith, senior development manager at Morrisons, said: “We know the residents of Kirkby are eagerly anticipating the opening of this store and we’re pleased to be on site. It is just an empty shell at the moment so there is a lot to do but work is underway and we plan to open our doors this autumn. We look forward to meeting and serving the community later this year.”
Earlier this month, Cllr Tony Brennan and Cllr Louise Harbour were invited to a viewing of the store.
Harbour, who is a local ward councillor and deputy leader of Knowsley Council, said: “The new Morrisons will create job opportunities for local people as well as a boost to our economy. We have made great progress in such a short space of time and I’m really excited for the store to open its doors.”
