Supermarket chain Netto has refused to confirm or deny whether it wants to develop the site of an old Dewsbury Moor pub.

Rumours have circulated that the firm planned to build a new store at the old Woolpack Inn in Heckmondwike Road.

Meanwhile, it has also been suggested the Huddersfield Road branch of Johnson Dry Cleaners – formerly known as Jas Smith Cleaners – could shut.

Representatives would not comment on rumours the store was to close or relocate to Huddersfield.
