A STREET that was left in shock following a devastating fire that ripped through a laundry business has been earmarked for a new supermarket store.
Lidl intends to build a new store on Vale Road, Llandudno Junction. Proposals include the regeneration of the former Daily Post and Arriva buildings.
Last year, a faulty tumble dryer resulted in a fire which gutted Vale Textile Services. Work to demolish the building took place in December.
If Lidl's plans are giving the green light, the new venture will create 40 jobs.
Lidl UK’s regional head of property, Stuart Jardine, said: “We are extremely excited about the prospect of opening a store Llandudno Junction, improving shopping choice locally and bringing our top quality products at the lowest possible prices.”
As part of their plans, which include an in-store bakery, longer-style tills with dual packing facilities and customer toilets, the supermarket will hold a public consultation outlining plans for the new store.
Mr Jardine added: “We look forward to welcoming everyone along to the public consultation day and showcasing our plans whilst answering any questions.”
The consultation will take place between 3pm and 7pm next Monday at Llandudno Junction Labour and Social Club on Conway Road
Lidl’s property team will be on hand to outline the supermarket’s plans for the new store and answer any questions from the community.
