Netto’s plans for Warsop

Discount supermarket chain, Netto, is set to return to the region with plans to open a store in Warsop.

Proposals will be put forward to open the shop on Burns Lane, the site where Tesco had been given planning permission to build in 2011, but later withdrew.

Detailed drawings of the site have been sent to Warsop Parish Council who are due to meet with the company representatives on Monday evening.

The news is certain to attract interest from residents and councillors who have been calling for a new supermarket in the town.

With Nisa closing earlier this year, the town is served only by a Co-op convenience store, which many feel fails to meet the needs of the community.

Danish-based Netto had 193 stores open across Britain throughout the 1990s and 2000s, but they were bought by by Asda in 2010 in a £778m deal. The stores were then converted in Asda convenience outlets.

But the company is making a return to Britain in a joint venture with Sainsbury’s, as they try to stem the growing number of customers who are choosing to shop at other discount stores, Aldi and Lidl.
