Pub chain JD Wetherspoon is in the process of buying the former Blockbuster store in Queen Street, Morley.

National pub chain JD Wetherspoon has confirmed that it is close to completing a deal to buy a disused store in Morley town centre.

The deal involves the former Blockbuster video store in Queen Street, which has been empty since before Christmas.

The £1 million project would create 40 jobs.

A completion date of February 10 has been set, although planning and licencing permission will still need to be granted by Leeds City Council.

JD Wetherspoons spokesman Eddie Gershon said: “We are delighted to have exchanged on the former Blockbuster store in Morley.

“We have been keen to open a pub in the town for a number of years and are now closer to that happening.”
