Morrisons confirms the Opening Date for Kirkby store

by Jonathan Kearney

Morrisons has confirmed that it will open the doors of the new superstore in Kirkby Town Centre at 7am on Thursday 21 October 2021.

The store will be open between 7am and 10pm Monday to Saturday and from 11am to 5pm on Sundays.

Councillor Graham Morgan, the Leader of Knowsley Council, said: “I’m incredibly proud of what has been achieved in such a short space of time.  It’s been less than two years since we took ownership of Kirkby Town Centre and started the construction of the new retail development – bearing in mind we’ve had a pandemic to contend with too!

“I’m delighted to be able to share the Morrisons opening date – something we have all been waiting for.”

Morrisons is located on Irlam Drive in Kirkby Town Centre.  Nearby are a Morrisons petrol station (which opened today – Thursday 7 October 2021), along with KFC and Taco Bell restaurants, both of which opened their doors this summer.  A new Home Bargains store is also set to open over the coming months.

As part of Knowsley Council’s further development plans for Kirkby, construction of a multi-a screen cinema and three food and drink outlets is due to commence at the end of the year.
