Supermarket brings jobs to Barrhead

A NEW supermarket planned for Barrhead could bring up to 400 jobs to East Renfrewshire.

Asda has announced plans to invest more than £20 million in a new store, and a planning application has been lodged for the former Barrhead health centre site.

The supermarket giant has said that if approved, it will set up a recruitment centre in Barrhead to target job seekers in the area.

The new build shop could create up to 200 full and part-time vacancies, as well as 200 construction work posts.
