A national chain shop has announced it is to open a shop in the Ashby shopping area of the town later this year.
The Card Factory, who have a store in The Foundry Shopping Centre in Scunthorpe, have said they hope to have their new outlet open on Broadway by mid July this year.
The shop unit to be taken up was until recently occupied by Alan Betts butchers and as exclusively reported here on visitscunthorpe last September the butchers was planning to move into the unit occupied by the nearby Cooplands Bakery whilst the bakery, in turn, was planning to move to the vacant unit where the Norwich & Peterborough Building Society formally traded.
The news comes as it was announced that the Clinton Card shop in the town centre would not be closed under the first phase of a restructuring programme by the administrators at Zolfa Cooper as they look to make the business viable to prospective buyers.
Below, the report from last September regarding the butchers & bakers move.
