SUPERMARKET chain Waitrose has announced plans for a new store in Oundle, creating up to 120 jobs.

The retailer is planning a 15,000 sq ft store on the site of the former gas works in East Road.

Waitrose has reached an agreement to purchase the site from the current owners, subject to receiving planning consent.

An exhibition for the public to see and discuss the plans is being held in the Courthouse, in Mill Road on Wednesday and Thursday from 1pm to 7.30pm.

A spokesman for Waitrose said: “Waitrose has a long-standing ambition to come to Oundle, and the East Road site offers us a fantastic opportunity to bring more choice to local people and deliver substantial benefits, including a significant number of new jobs, opportunities for local food producers and support for community projects.”
