Mr Morris added:
“I am delighted. I have long believed a supermarket at Dalton Park would be an overwhelming success. I have aired my frustrations on many occasions as the large empty unit at Dalton Park was a wasted opportunity for jobs, investment and amenity for the community.
The increased footfall generated by Morrisons will benefit all businesses at Dalton Park. Morrisons is a welcome addition to the retail landscape of East Durham, offering competition and consumer choice.”
