SUPERMARKET customers in Highbridge are being given the chance to influence the revamp of one of the town’s biggest shops.

Store bosses at the town’s branch of Asda say they want to overhaul both the inside and outside of the store, boost parking and increase the store’s product ranges.

Proposals include a general refurbishment of the store, including the car park, and the addition of a mezzanine floor to accommodate a cafeteria and a bigger George clothing range.

However, before a planning application is formally submitted to Sedgemoor District Council, the chain wants to ensure its customers support any changes.

Alan Jones, Asda’s estates town planning manager, said: “We’d like to provide more choice and a wider range of goods so that we can continue to provide for our customers’ needs.

“The improvements, if agreed, would allow the store to operate more efficiently, with wider aisles and more checkouts.

“We would also be able to increase the range of non-food goods, such as our George clothing range, providing more choice at our famous everyday prices.”

Two public consultation events have now been arranged at the Caxton Drive store, which opened in 2007.

They will take place from 10am-7pm on February 11, and from 9am-1pm on February 15.

Mr Jones added: “The views of our local community matter so we hope lots of people will come along, meet members of our team, and give us their feedback.”
