The opening of the new Morrisons Daily store in Shaftesbury is now due in January after delays apparently caused by ‘supplier problems’.
The store – the former Budgens – was originally hoping to open in time for Christmas.
Elite Garages, the Sussex-based company behind the development, were in Shaftesbury from 5-6 Nov recruiting some 30 staff for the two stores on the site.
The old store has been divided in two with one half converted into a garage for tyres, MOT and repairs.
Permission has been granted for residential flats on the upper floors.
