Wadebridge May Miss Out On 200 Jobs
7:01am 4th June 2014
Wadebridge could miss out on two hundred new jobs.
Work on a new Sainsburys at Higher Trenant has been put on hold, just six weeks after starting.
The supermarket was going to invest more than £200,000 into the community, on things like parking, bus routes and the Camel Trail.
But now the town could lose that cash pot as well as full-time and part-time jobs.
The fifty-thousand square foot store was due to open by Christmas.
Paul runs the Old Forge Fish Shop in the town centre. He would still like to see it go ahead. He said: "It'll be good for the community because we need a decent petrol station, which is cheap, and also it's good to have variety, it should bring more people into the town if nothing else, I just hope they go ahead now and give us the money for the community that they were going to.
"It means our trade will stay the same as it is [if it doesn't go ahead], if not improve, but unfortunately it means it's not being built and that will put off a lot of people because there was a lot of jobs on offer, we could do with the work, full-time work."
But many other stores in the town are pleased.
They were worried it would draw trade away from the centre.7:01am 4th June 2014
