Set to open at Ringtail retail park
FAST food chain Subway has finally confirmed that it will open a new shop at the Burscough Ringtail Retail Park.
The sandwich shop had long been rumoured to be moving into the retail park, potentially into one of the units under construction near the Booths petrol station.
Despite the badly kept secret, the chain had remained tight-lipped on the plans until recently, with no official statement forthcoming.
But the news was let slip thanks to a posting for jobs at the new shop.
The firm has now confirmed that work on the building will begin on Monday, October 16.
Posts on a job search website revealed that Subway is recruiting both “sandwich artists” and team leaders. in a mixture of part time and full time roles.
The listing for the sandwich artist vacancies states: “As a sandwich artist, you are the face of a global brand. Your smile and warm, friendly greeting start every guest’s experience. This winning attitude and the ability to make delicious sandwiches quickly and efficiently will make you a key member of the team.
“You are the reason why customers keep coming back.
“The sandwich artist greets and serves guests, prepares food, maintains food safety and sanitation standards, and handles or processes light paperwork.
“Exceptional customer service is a major component of this position.”
The shop is being opened by franchisee, Nick Moy, who is opening his first Subway store in Burscough Ringtail Retail Park, Liverpool.
Neil Denny, Subway’s regional development agent, said: “The new store construction will commence on the October 16 with an anticipated three-week build.
“The store is currently recruiting for a mixture of 10 full time and part time staff from the local area
“This is very exciting store opening, as it will be Nick’s first Subway store and he will be creating jobs for local people. We have no doubt that the store will be a great success.”
While Subway has more than 2,400 stores in the UK and Ireland, each of its stores is owned by families and business people such as Nick.
The chain already operates a store in the village, just minutes away in Liverpool Road.
There have also been rumours that the discount clothing and homewares chain TK Maxx could open a store at the retail park, though a spokesman for the store declined to comment when contacted by the Visiter.
This year alone, Aldi and Peacocks have opened stores at the park.
