Costa Coffee have opened their first drive-thru in Hartlepool as part of a three store strategy for the town. They chose Vision Retail Park to benefit from the strong retail and leisure trade along Marina Way.
Stane Retail Park of 170,300 sq ft is partly pre-let to B&Q for an 80,000 sq ft store plus garden centre and builders yard as a relocation from The Hythe, Colchester. Other names revealed in the planning application include Aldi for an 18,500 sq ft store as a relocation from Lexden, and an 11,000 sq ft M&S Food Hall who will a welcome new fascia to Tollgate. The site is opposite Sainsbury’s and the Stane Leisure Park on the Stanway Western Bypass.
Gregory Moore Property acted for Churchmanor Estates and is their letting agent.
On site works are going well on the Costa Coffee unit.
Handover is expected in September and an opening date to be announced shortly
