PROPERTY developer Terrace Hill has signed up to build a new Sainsbury’s supermarket in County Durham, which will create around 250 jobs.
Work on the 50,000 sq ft store with 322 parking spaces will start in Sedgefield later this year and is due to be open at Easter 2013.
In the last three years, Terrace Hill has built three large foodstores including one in Bishop Auckland. It currently has a “substantial pipeline” of further development sites.
Chief executive, Philip Leech, said: “We continue to see good levels of activity in the foodstore sector and we expect the growth of our foodstore development pipeline to deliver significant returns for the business.”
