Mark Welcomes Deeside’s Renewal

Alyn and Deeside MP Mark Tami has hailed news of new stores in Deeside as a major revival of the area.

He said the reopening of the Woolworths building in Shotton was the latest in a series of good news stories for Deeside.

“News that the former Woolworths store is to reopen comes fast on the heels of Wetherspoons announcing their intention to open a major new bar in Shotton. It also comes as B&Q’s old store is to be taken over and improved, and also as the St Modwens shopping centre in Connah’s Quay is taking shape.

“Combined, this represents an enormous investment in Deeside and a real revival of our town centres. Many new jobs are set to be created and the town centres are revving up for a revival. This is more than a shot in the arm for Deeside, it is a clear and powerful signal of the area’s renewal.”
