Rumours quashed

FAST food chain McDonalds has no plans to open a store in Alnwick, the Gazette has been told.

Rumours around the town were that the burger giant was to be coming. But a statement from the company says that while they are always looking for new sites, Alnwick is not one of them.

It said: “McDonald’s wants to serve its customers at the times and places which suit them. It’s no surprise to hear rumours of possible sites, but at present we don’t have any plans to open a restaurant in Alnwick.”
