Morrisons 'moving in' at Torquay and Paignton Blockbuster sites
SUPERMARKET chain Morrisons has confirmed it will open stores in Torquay and Paignton by the end of the summer.
The retail giant has bought the stores from troubled DVD rental chain Blockbuster.
The new 'Morrisons M local' stores will open in Market Street in Torquay and Torquay Road in Preston. Both Blockbusters are due to close before the end of the month.
A Morrisons spokesman said: "We hope to have the stores trading by the end of the summer."

Morrisons has already said it would welcome applications from former Blockbuster staff.
The supermarket chain has bought 49 Blockbuster stores across the country. Blockbuster is in administration and is looking for buyers for remaining stores, including Newton Abbot, which is still open and trading as usual.
Richard Randle-Jones, centre director of Union Square shops complex, said: "It is hoped Morrisons will drive footfall into the town. It could be quite a good boost for the town, only time will tell."
