Plans to breathe new life into an unused building in Hull city centre have been unveiled by Sainsbury’s.

The supermarket chain wants to open a Sainsbury’s Local convenience store in a former Post Office building.

If the proposal is given planning and licensing approval, it is hoped it will open in spring 2015.

The venture is set to create 20 new full and part-time jobs, taking the number of people Sainsbury’s employs in and around Hull to nearly 800.

The former Post Office building on Jameson Street has not been used for the last seven years.

Sainsbury’s acquisitions surveyor, Jack Ward, said the firm believed the store would benefit the city centre by complementing its other major retailers.

He said the conversion would ensure the vacant building was brought back into commercial use and fulfil the company’s long-held wish to open a store in the city centre.
