Starbucks, Subway and HSL Chairs will be opening new stores as part of the Wellingborough Retail Park being built on the town’s London Road.

The new development, by the UK’s leading regeneration specialist St. Modwen, will open later this year and will also include the town’s first Lidl supermarket as well as a McDonalds Drive Thru restaurant.

The retail park sits on the main approach to the town centre and opposite the existing Castlefields Retail Park, which includes B&Q, M&S food, Pets and Home and Pizza Hut.

The site was formerly used by Whitworth Bakery and then Knapp Tools, but had been derelict for a number of years prior to its purchase by St. Modwen.

The new signings mean that there is only one retail unit left to let.

Gary Morris, Senior Development Manager at St. Modwen said that the new stores would complement the existing retail and food offer in the area:

“Starbucks and Subway will offer yet more variety to the food offer in the area, whilst HSL will complement the existing homeware stores nearby.”

Simon Toseland, Director at Prop Search which is acting for St. Modwen added:

“We’re delighted to be able to confirm that the scheme is virtually fully let, ahead of completion of the development, with only one unit still available..”
