JOBS BOOST AS HIGH STREET CHAIN EXPANDS
A supermarket chain says it will create
up to 2,500 jobs with the opening of 10
new stores this year.
Bradford-based Morrisons said the
strategy would increase the number of
the company's stores to 95.
A company spokesman said the chain was
expanding into the South East, with an
Essex store due to open on Monday.
The announcement came as Morrison
reported an 11% increase in half-yearly
profits, to £68m.
