SAINSBURY’S has appointed the manager of its new supermarket due to open in Portishead in October.
Paul Morrison will take up the reins at the Serbert Way store which will employ about 250 people.
The 35-year-old father-of-two, who lives in Weston and previously managed Sainsbury’s Kingswood branch, says he is excited to be leading the new store.
He said: “I am looking forward to Sainsbury’s being a part of the Portishead community and am currently spending a great deal of time getting to know the local area, meeting residents, business owners and people involved in local community groups.”
Paul will be heading a Sainsbury’s stall at Portishead carnival on Saturday which will give residents a chance to find out more about the building work in progress and ask any questions they may have.

He added: “We will need to fill around 40 full-time positions and more than 200 part-time posts. We are looking for a wide selection of people, offer all our staff training and our in-store academy offers development opportunities for those who want a long term career with Sainsbury’s.”
