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.
You may also want to watch:
“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.”
