Carlisle Asda to create up to 200 jobs

Up to two hundred jobs are to be created by the opening of a new supermarket in Cumbria.

Asda has announced it will open a store at St Nicholas Gate retail park in Carlisle, replacing the existing nearby store which employs 29 people.

A spokesman for Asda said they were "delighted" the new supermarket would provide jobs in the "local community".

The 25,000-sq-ft store is due to open in July. The company is creating about 2,500 new jobs in the UK this year.
