New brew for Burton’s Coopers Square

12 December 2016

Costa Coffee has opened a new branch at Coopers Square Shopping Centre in Burton upon Trent.

The nationwide coffee chain has taken 1,926 sq ft of retail space on a 10-year lease at the shopping centre. The unit is located at the site of the former Salem Baptist Church which was acquired by New Frontier in May 2016 and converted into two retail units.

The letting to Costa Coffee is one of a number completed at Coopers Square in 2016, with Select and New Look Menswear adding to the fashion line-up most recently. Footfall in Coopers Square has bucked the regional trend and is up by over 3% compared to 2015, now welcoming over 9m visitors annually.

Alison Gurney, senior asset manager of Waypoint New Frontier, said: ?Costa Coffee is a welcome addition to Coopers Square?s food and beverage offer and provides a striking new entrance for the centre from Church Street?
