BARGAIN FOR CONNAH’S QUAY

National retailer Home Bargains has become the latest retailer to sign up for a new £15m development at Connah’s Quay, Flintshire.

The retailer joins local businesses Connah’s Quay MOT Testing Centre and Deeside Fish and Chip Shop at the Ffordd Llanarth scheme.

The shopping centre, being developed by St Modwen, is anchored by a large Morrisons food store and includes an additional twelve retail units, 325 car parking spaces, improved pedestrian links and a bus pick-up point.

Paul Batho, project director at St Modwen, said: “This is great news for Flintshire. Home Bargains is one of a number of deals we have already secured for the site and we are in advanced discussions with a number of well known retail operators who are keen to be part of the scheme.

“We’re aiming to provide a good variety of shops at the development and it is anticipated that hundreds of jobs will be created once the retail centre opens.”

The six acre development is already taking shape following the completion of the steel frame for the retail units.

Demolition of the original 1970s-style centre started in June 2009 and was completed in August 2009.

Construction of the new district centre will be completed in the summer of 2010 before being handed over to the retailers to start work on the internal fit-out of the units.
