A SUPERMARKET'S revolving doors could be replaced by new sliding ones.
Asda has submitted plans for a replacement entrance lobby that should bring an end to the controversy that has surrounded the Hatfield store.
Asda has previously been accused of starving the troubled town centre of vital trade because the side doors were continually being shut, mainly due to technical faults.
But store manager Peter Sweetser told the WHT: "I share the same frustrations as traders and customers - all I want to do is serve the customers.

"There's so many reasons I'm delighted we are finally getting sliding doors. They are far more beneficial for all parties."
Mr Sweetser added parts for the revolving doors had to be shipped over from Germany so, in the event of a fault, they had to be closed for a considerable amount of time.
