Broomhill institution Williamson Hardware will move into an adjacent unit to make way for a new Sainsbury’s supermarket.
The landlord of the unit gained planning permission to develop the site for a new occupier earlier this month and it has been confirmed that Sainsbury’s will take it on.
It is believed that Williamson will move into the smaller property next door which was until recently occupied by Blackwell’s bookshop.
A spokesperson from Sainsbury’s said: “The future of local traders is important to us, and we are pleased that Williamson, a long standing local trader, has agreed plans with their landlord to relocate to another adjacent unit on Fulwood Road.”
Williamson has been trading in Broomhill for 52 years.
