A home store on the edge of Preston city centre has applied to open a cafe.Advertisement
The Range, which opened in what will become the Queen Street retail park, wants to add a cafe to its store.
It states: “As part of the company’s business model a number of its stores also provide an ancillary cafe which serves snacks and hot and cold drinks. This provides an opportunity for customers to take refreshments and relax as part of their overall shopping trip.”
The cafe would be run by The Range and not by any franchised operator.
Estimates from the parent firm CDS Superstores estimates the cafe would turn over £400,000 per year.
The full plans are available to view on the city council website.
