Braintree: Asda unveils plans for store at Freeport
8:44am Wednesday 12th September 2012 in News
Asda has revealed it plans to set up shop on the outskirts of town.
The retail giant is working with Freeport Braintree to build a supermarket and petrol station on vacant land next to the outlet shopping village in Millennium Way.
It will create 300 jobs for local people, in addition to the 800 people already employed at Freeport.
The store, with a sales area of 30,000 sq ft, will mainly sell food but also CDs, DVDs, books, homeware and George clothing. A 75-space commuter car park next to Freeport railway station is also planned.
There will be public exhibitions next week.
