Eastern European convenience shop plan submitted
Plans for a new convenience store specialising in Eastern European foods have been submitted to Stratford District Council.
The applicant is seeking to convert the unit in Western Road, which sits adjacent to a unit occupied by disability services organisation Avon Support, into a 380sqm convenience shop.
The store would be run by the company Grosik, which already has established premises in Banbury, Huntington and Crewe.
It would sell food and drink, tobacco, consumables, with a particular emphasis on Eastern European and domestic products.
If the application is approved, the store would create ten full-time jobs and would operate between 7am-10.30pm Monday to Saturday and 7am-8pm on Sundays.
A decision on the application is expected towards the end of March.
