They include 26 re-branding signs for the petrol filling station and car wash and 17 illuminated and non-illuminated signs to retail store.
As well as the company’s logo, there will also be signs showing photographs of customers and products that will adorn glazed walls at the front of the shop.
The application – registered this week – states the signs are needed from October 2023 for a period of five years.
What’s the background?
The Morrisons near Deepdale Retail Park closed its doors on September 10. The closure was three weeks earlier than originally planned after the company agreed a deal to sell the store to its supermarket rival.
It was initially scheduled to close on September 29, but this was brought forward to allow Tesco to begin its renovation as quickly as possible.
Work did duly begin in September, with a rumoured December opening date, but this has still to be confirmed.
A Tesco spokesperson told the Post: “We look forward to opening this new superstore in Preston in the coming weeks and will inform the local community of the opening date in due course.”
Morrisons said all staff will transfer across to Tesco and all drivers will be assigned to its other store off Riversway at the Docks.
