A major retailer has announced the opening of a new store in a North East town, creating dozens of jobs in the area.

Lidl has confirmed a new supermarket will be opening on the High Street in Norton on Thursday, February 9 at 8am.

The store is set to create around 40 jobs for the local community and new starters will be among the highest paid in the supermarket sector following a wage increase last October.

The store will be open between 8am to 10pm on Monday to Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sunday.
