A 'so far' unnamed cut price supermarket chain has its sights firmly aimed on Worsley as part of a proposed much larger retail area. Earlier this week it was announced that O'Flannigan Construction based upon the Wirral, was aiming to submit planning permission to build a medium sized 'precinct' complex on land it has acquired close to Worsley Woods. If given the go ahead by the local council it would see eight retail units and up to 56 new jobs created in the area. So far it said that there has been interest from a local budget supermarket chain of the likes of Aldi or Lidl that plans to take up 2 units for a new store at the prime location. A charity shop and food-bank operated by the upper church of later-day saints is also looking at taking a unit. A smaller unit at the entrance to the site would make a perfect fast food drive-thru opportunity a spokesperson said. Earlier this week a source within O'Flannigan Construction told us: Additionally the company have also set out plans for a call centre to be built on land in nearby Roe Green. We will have more on this story if it develops.
