Two new shops are set to be added to a Preston city centre retail park.Advertisement
Queen’s Street retail park has applied to add the two new units alongside the Aldi supermarket on the northern side of the development.
At this stage it is not known which retailers will take the shop.
A small ‘retail pod’ is also to be added opposite the Costa Coffee drive-through at the exit of the retail park leading into Ringway.
Work on the retail units will also see a better pedestrian link between the retail park and Church Street created.
The new retail units would have a combined floor area of 2,091 square metres.
