Burnham-On-Sea supermarket will get 'Morrisons makeover' in April

Somerfield has announced the date when its seafront supermarket in Burnham-On-Sea will close in order for refurbishment work to begin as it becomes a Morrisons store.

Burnham-On-Sea.com first reported in January that the Somerfield store in Pier Street is being rebranded after a change of ownership.

This week, posters have appeared outside the store, as pictured, stating that it will close for refurbishment on Wednesday 8th April. It is expected to close for several days while it is given a 'Morrisons makeover'.

Staff currently working there will join Morrisons following the handover. The store was sold by the Co-Operative Group, subject to agreement from the Office of Fair Trading.

Burnham-On-Sea.com first reported in January 2008 rumours that the store was up for sale. The reports were denied at the time.
