New Iceland supermarket would deliver fresh jobs

ICELAND has announced plans to open a new store in Lee town centre.
The Wales-based supermarket giant is eyeing the vacant Argos unit on the corner of Pickwood Road.
Iceland is intending to open 50 new stores across the UK, creating hundreds of fresh jobs.
The proposed new Leek store, which would create around 25 new jobs, has the support of district councillor Pam Wood.
She told the Sentinel: “I am relieved this building will not be vavant much longer. This is a big shop and needs filling.
“It will bring additional jobs into the town which has to be good news. Art the moment the premises does not give a good impression of the town as it stands empty on the busy main road.”
Last year Iceland, which has its headquarters on Deeside, became the first UK supermarket to pledge to remove palm oil from all its own brands, in a bid to halt the ongoing destruction of tropical rainforests in south-east Asia.”
