Bond International, a leading UK tyre wholesaler, currently operates from a warehouse building on Wedgwood Way. The existing building is reaching the end of its useful life, and Bond International has decided to relocate to a larger, purpose-built site in Biggleswade later this year (where they are looking to retain current employees at their new facility).
At the moment, the north east of Stevenage is poorly served for major supermarkets, meaning many residents have to drive up to four miles to stores elsewhere in the town. By providing a new supermarket on this site, Morrisons will improve shopping choice and help reduce the distance local people travel by car, as well as more than doubling the number of people employed at the site.
We’re proposing a store with 5,326 sq m gross / 2,995 sq m net floorspace, and will create up to 285 new local jobs. The proposed development also includes a new six pump petrol filling station, offering affordable fuel and electric vehicle charging for local residents.
This brand new, purpose built, store will provide Morrisons’ full range of fresh food including our popular ‘Market Street’ with specialist butchers, bakers and fishmongers, and improve shopping choice for residents in Stevenage.

In recent years we have opened several ‘new look’ stores, and we’d like to bring some of the new innovations we’ve learned from there to Stevenage. These pictures from our newest store in Kirkby (opened October 2021) show how the Stevenage store could look and feel.
