Costa Confirms for The Crescent, Hinckley

The company has exchanged contracts on a 1,787 sq ft unit at the new scheme.

Its second store in the town centre – and joins Sainsbury's, Cineworld, TK Maxx, Prezzo, Simply Gym and Poundland at the new development. Fab and Elbow Room, two local companies, are also opening at the Crescent.

Tony Baker, of the Tin Hat Partnership said:

"We are delighted to have another national retail brand signed up to the Crescent. Costa opening their new store not only shows great faith in our development but in Hinckley as a whole.

"There is a real sense now that we are starting to see the line-up at the Crescent take shape and it's a great mix of retail and leisure – bringing a range of new names into the town as well as providing space for successful operators to expand.

"The exciting news is that we are very close to signing at least two more retailers that will, again, provide something new for Hinckley town centre. We are also in very positive discussions with several more companies too."

Emma Hobbs, Costa Acquisitions Manager, said:

"Costa, the UK's favourite coffee shop, is pleased to announce that we're opening a brand new store in Hinckley, bringing more choice, investment and eight to ten new jobs to the local area.

"As with all of our new store openings, we're looking forward to playing our part in the community, getting involved with local events and initiatives, providing a new meeting place for local groups and helping with local charity work and fundraising where we can."

The new store brings further investment and jobs to Hinckley with the Crescent and existing Castle Street store employing 20 people in the town.

Sainsbury's will be the first store to open at the Crescent as it is set to launch on Wednesday, November 4.

A month later, Cineworld will be 'premiered' to cinemagoers in the town, with the remaining outlets opening over the course of the next few months.

Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council's Executive Member for Town Centres, Chris Ladkin, said:

"This is more good news for the whole of Hinckley town centre.

"Hinckley already has a very strong offering in shops, restaurants and our market in the Castle Street area. It is now clear that the Crescent with its cinema, large Sainsbury's supermarket and a wide range retailers in clothing, food, drink and coffee will complement our Castle Street area ensuring Hinckley town centre as a whole will be a very attractive destination both in the day and at night."
