Thirty New Jobs for Cornwall
2:56pm 25th April 2013
Thirty new jobs have been announced in Camborne on the day Britain avoided a triple dip recession.
Budget chain 99 pee Stores is opening a new branch at the old Comet building on Trevenson Road.
It opened its first two branches in the Duchy last year, in Launceston and St Austell.
Director Peter Gent, said: "It's not so much a question of expansion in Cornwall, we're expanding all over the UK. It's important to us to employ local people. We try to be seen as a local store, and we try to help the local environment, the local populus. Jobs are important these days aren't they?
"With restricted family incomes and reduced budget, people are looking harder and harder for value, particularly in their day to day shopping and their groceries."
Latest GDP figures released on Thursday morning, showed a return to growth in the first the first three months of 2013.
A modest increase of 0.3 percent was enough to stop Britain falling into an unprecedented triple dip recession.
