Good news for our local jobs market. Sainsbury's are opening a new supermarket on the current site of Colliers car show room on Sutton Road, Erdington. Colliers will be relocating to a new showroom on the Tyburn Road, close to the Peugot garage. Trevor Holtom said: "This is great news; both businesses will be creating much needed jobs for local residents and a boost to our economy."
This follows other welcome news on the jobs front from Jaguar. As previously reported, Jaguar's parent company have made the decision to keep the Castle Vale plant open with no loss of jobs. Cllr Ann Holtom *Lib Dem, Tyburn Ward) said: "This is a great vindication of the skills of our local work force. Tata recognised that the quality of workmanship and commitment we have on offer cannot be rivalled anywhere else. Well done to our workers."
