St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist, has increased its independent retail offer, signing up an innovative deli concept, at Longbridge Town Centre.

Stone Willy’s, which has a number of outlets across the Midlands, including in Birmingham City Centre by New Street Station, has agreed a lease on 774 sq ft of space on the high street.

Stone Willy’s will bring its innovative mix of wraps, salads, hot food and snacks to the town centre in the next couple of months and will appeal to a wide range of consumers including students, office workers and visitors.

Mark Watkins, senior development surveyor at St. Modwen, said: “We’re pleased to have signed up Stone Willy’s to the town centre at Longbridge. The retailer will add to the growing diversity of the location, supporting the creation of a vibrant, mixed use space for visitors and those living and working in the area.

“We look forward to welcoming the opening of Stone Willy’s in the next couple of months, following fit out. We are also in advanced talks with a number of other retailers to take space in the town centre and hope to make further announcements in the near future.”

Peter Robinson, managing director of Stone Willy’s, added: “We are very excited about the opening of our new shop in Longbridge, which will be our flagshop store. We’ve got a fantastic menu with a focus on wraps and salads, giving customers a fresh, different option compared to what is typically available. The shop will initially employ four members of staff but we are expecting this to grow by the end of 2014.”
