Pickstock Construction Starts on Sainsbury’s Food Store in Llangollen

Pickstock Construction has commenced work on the second phase of development in Llangollen, to build a brand new Sainsbury’s food store.

Two years ago, Pickstock Construction’s associated development company J-Ross Developments Ltd gained permission from Denbighshire Council to relocate local employer Dobson & Crowther Ltd to a brand new purpose built printing facility at Climedw on the outskirts of Llangollen, and construct a new Sainsbury’s food store and car park on the old print works site.

Andy Jones, Managing Director of Pickstock Construction commented “We have now commenced construction of the new food store for Sainsbury’s following the successful relocation of Dobson and Crowther to its new home a short distance away.” 

Dobson and Crowther moved from their old print works to their brand new facility half a mile away in October of last year.   Pickstock Construction intends to demolish their old premises during February with a view to starting construction of the new 3,205sqm Sainsbury’s food store next month.

The riverside footpath which links the store to the town will also be improved to provide a safe and convenient pedestrian route to the town centre.

Pickstock Construction has worked closely with Sainsbury’s new development team to plan the build programme, handing the new store over to Sainsbury’s at the end of the summer 2015.
