Work on a new rank of retail units in the Yate Shopping Centre has passed the half-way stage.
New Yate shopping centre development has passed the half-way stage.
Four new shop units are being constructed on East Walk. Three national retailers, M&S Simply Food, Costa Coffee and Sports Direct, have already signed up to take on the leases of the units with M&S due to combine two of the shop fronts to make one larger space.
All three shops are due to be completed in March and retailers are expected to move in shortly afterwards.
Andrew Lowrey, Yate Shopping Centre manager, said the development was going well.
He said: "Building work at Yate Shopping Centre is going according to plan with construction of the new retail units in the East Walk development scheduled for completion in mid-March.
"We are currently in the 13th week of the 20-week build programme and all steel work and first floor decking has been completed so the form of the new units is now visible to shoppers visiting the centre.
"The occupiers – M&S Simply Food, Sports Direct and Costa Coffee - will then take occupancy of the units to start fitting-out the shells with openings scheduled for late spring."
