Newcastle gets a second Morrisons store
Today, Morrisons will open a new supermarket in Newcastle’s Great Park, bringing with it over 110 new full- and part-time employment.

Highlights of the 20,000 sq. ft. Stores with knowledgeable employees on hand to provide cooking advice and suggestions at the butchery and fish counters include Morrisons Market Street. Other noteworthy characteristics of the new shop include:

Nutmeg apparel from Morrisons
Morrisons’ The Best line, which provides a touch of luxury at excellent rates
A 66-seat café offering a variety of foods and beverages throughout the day
A wide selection of takeout meals
a line of soft furnishings and cookware for the house
A huge range of goods that are Free From
The Great Park store will also carry a wide variety of goods that have been sourced from regional vendors because Morrisons is pleased to collaborate with foodmakers, growers, and producers to provide locally adored food and drink. These consist of:

Pudding Pease from Durham Foods
Family Dicksons Pies
Soft drinks from Fentimans
Brewery Hadrian & Border Ale
The store aspires to be a significant part of the neighborhood, and Community Champion Esther Moorhead has already met with neighbourhood organisations while the store has been under building. Email Esther at if your community organisation wants to promote itself to the store.

Additionally, the store has a Community Room that provides free meeting space for neighbourhood organisations like charities, reading clubs, craft groups, and gaming communities. Anyone wanting to reserve the room should get in touch with Esther. The room is intended to help community organisations manage the rising cost of renting out meeting spaces.

“We know the residents of Great Park have been eagerly anticipating the opening of this store,” said Ian Brocklehurst, Morrisons Great Park shop Manager. They now have a brand-new Morrisons shop with expert food preparation at its core and a wealth of helpful services. We anticipate welcoming clients and hope they enjoy it.

The managing director of Persimmon North East, Stuart Grimes, said: “It’s wonderful to be here to commemorate yet another important turning point for Great Park. Residents of Great Park and surrounding areas will benefit from this fantastic new facility, and shoppers can reach the new store via the newly opened new link road to Kingston Park.

“Great Park is a great place to live, work, and raise a family with the continued growth of the Great Park town center, two schools, a nursery, and further amenities to come.”

Jack Thompson from Gateshead, who was chosen for his outstanding work with Young Lives VS Cancer, will perform the formal opening of the store. Local dignitaries came to the shop before it opened to meet the manager and his new staff.
