    Morrison's car park will be free when it opens.

    Same terms as Asda/Tesco as far as I'm aware.

    More likely to be the same as Sainsbury's. The main company Morrisons subcontract to for car parking uses that for all it's sites, which is why most morrisons operate that way in area's where they wish to restrict non-customer parking.

    Given it's prime placement, I imagine it will be the same

    I don't see why the car park can't be opened. Given all the inconvenience we've had to endure whilst the new developments have been built it'd be nice if we got something back - a couple of hours of free parking!

    drove past today work looks to have stalled on the petrol station. they don't seem to be in any rush to open. i do hope the rumors of not opening are unfounded. but when you see what looks from the outside a stalled project and a very quiet morrisons on the subject it does make you wonder

    Remember when Asda was built, it was quite a while after it opening that the petrol station was built.

    I hope the rumours are true, the saddistic side of me wants those in charge* of allowing to may think twice** about allowing another developnment, in the future.

    *probably long gone now, in charge of a council department in Scotland, perhaps.
    **they may not have even thought once!

    Someone has suggested that the Stafford Tescos is being wound down as they wish to move to a new site. Can't comment on the reliability of the source though.

    Who needs a reliable source. An unreliable rumour is good enough. Tesco to move to Morrisons site, Newport Rd store to become Borough Council HQ, shock, horror, probe, etc.

    There have been layoffs at the site and pay cuts already, but closing it? , don't see it, there are worse ones in the area which have already had their 24 hour status removed, surely if Stafford was at threat , that'd be the first course of action, n I'm sure it only had a refurb a year ago.

    Checkouts seem to have been removed from Sainsburys store. The new occupant of the Not Morrisons site?
