Liverpool Home Bargains given green light 

The vacant 15,000 sq ft store on County Road in Walton is to be extended and converted following the closure of Jack’s Supermarket last year. 

Discount supermarket Home Bargains will take over the store, following approval from Liverpool City Council for its refurbishment 

TJ Morris, the company that owns Home Bargains, will overhaul the unit and add an 8,000 sq ft extension, taking the total footprint of the revamped store to 23,000 sq ft. 

The existing entrance lobby is to be demolished and replaced with a more modern structure. 

The expansion of the store will result in a loss of 15 parking spaces, according to a planning statement by consultant Quod. 

Jack’s Supermarket closed last year after parent company Tesco scrapped the discount brand it established in 2018. 

Seven of the vacant stores, including the one in Walton, were put up for sale. The other six are to be converted into Tescos. 

Home Bargains is also planning to take over the former Jack’s Supermarket in Middlewich. TJ Morris lodged a planning application for the shop’s conversion in January.

Great to see Liverpool’s planning ticket full of game-changing applications. Interesting to note elsewhere that the council has put up for sale a building it owns on London Road that has been empty for more than 9 years. That’s right: it has sat on a redundant asset that others could have refurbished for productive use for nine years. Ponder that.

Good news for County Road, will this store get a coffee shop too? In the not too far off future when Everton re-locate County Road will lose a lot of footfall from matchdays.
Once again the city council needs a strategy to maintain the fabric of the area and if shops become empty to allow re-use as residential dwellings on this important arterial road, as long as this is done tastefully.

Fabulous, more jobs created, more choice and competition for customers

Fantastic news! Liverpool City Council need a plan for the area as what will happen when EFC move! It will be desolate! Anfield obviously still has the stadium but area is still so in need of investment! These 2 areas need attention and investment.
