Starbucks, Subway and HSL Chairs will be opening stores as part of a new retail park being built on one of the main roads leading into Wellingborough.
The new development in London Road by 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 before it was bought 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 and said: “Starbucks and Subway will offer yet more variety to the food offer in the area, while 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.”
Opening dates have not yet been confirmed for the new stores, although it is hoped that the first stores will start opening their doors by early November.
