Waitrose rule out Ballyclare move

SUPERMARKET chain Waitrose has ruled out a move into Ballyclare.

It had been rumoured that the retailer, one of the UK’s biggest, was considering a location in the town, possibly at the former Woodsides building.

However, a spokesman for the company ruled out any move into the town in the immediate future.

He told the Times: “We are keen to move into the Northern Ireland market at some stage, but as yet have not identified a site and have no plans.”
