A SUPERMARKET has revealed its decision on whether it will open a new store in the area.

Calls were made for a Sainsbury's supermarket to be built in Dalton in a move that could give the area a 'bit of oomph'.

And the national supermarket has responded to calls to open a new shop.

A spokeswoman for the company said: "We have no current plans but we regularly review our estate."

The supermarket was urged to open a store after community leaders in the town responded to a letter sent to The Mail.

It said Dalton was 'in distress' following the closure of shops and the sell-off of a number of community assets including the police station and fire station.

“Welcome to Dalton-in-Furness.Ancient capital of Furness.

“No library. No police station. No banks. No fire station."
