With no other major supermarket in the Town Centre, a new foodstore here will dramatically improve the food shopping provision in Ashford.
With a sales area of 72,000 sqft the store will incorporate a full range of goods and services. It will also include a six-island petrol filling station, bringing competitively priced fuel in a convenient location.
As well as giving much greater choice and competition for food shopping, the new foodstore will create up to 300 new local jobs.
The design of the building is intentionally modern and striking, creating a vibrant and attractive shopping area. To maximise parking, the store will be raised on stilts with the sales area at first floor level. Lifts and travellators will provide easy access to the sales floor from the surface level car parking below.
A sustainable and highly accessible location, Victoria Way already enjoys good road links and is well served by public transport, with convenient bus stops nearby and Ashford International railway station adjacent. Highway improvements will ensure easy access for all modes of transport.
