Marks and Spencers have revealed plans to build a new food hall in the village, adjacent to the station.
The company confirmed they have been looking for a suitable site for a new food hall in Alderley Edge for about 10 years.
A spokesperson for M&S said "The land at the rail station is well located to provide a key focal point at the northern end of the town centre and to provide shopping and employment opportunities for residents of the town."
The proposed scheme includes a car park providing 50 spaces for the store, a separate car park providing 23 spaces for rail users along with a new pedestrian access connecting the new car park with the platforms.
There would also be additional parking for rail users marked out on the opposite side of the railway tracks whilst customers and delivery vehicles would continue to use the existing site access.
Subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission, the company says the new store could be open in 2018 creating approximately 50 new jobs.
M&S are holding a public exhibition next week and would like to hear your opinions before the proposed scheme for a new M&S food hall on land at Alderley Edge station is finalised and a planning application is submitted.
The public exhibition is being held at the Festival Hall on Friday 21st July between 3pm and 7pm and on Saturday 22nd July from 10am to 4pm. Representatives from Marks and Spencer's project team will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
