Opening soon in the marketing suite by the new leisure centre. It had to happen sooner or later.

We are entering a weird post-capitalist communist state where there are lots of shops to choose from but they all sell exactly the same sandwiches

I'm not Pret's number one fan by any means, but I think it's really significant that an established chain with a reputation for quality has finally come to the area. It's the very first time this has happened, as far as I can see - let's face it, no one in their right mind is going to take a lease in the Shopping Centre. Let's hope this is an indication of some quality retail to come.

Opens this Friday at 6.30am according to the signs in the window

As long ago as last September, Lendlease was looking to sell the retail element of One The Elephant as an investment proposition for 4.125 million

(That document is dated Sep 2015 and I've subsequently heard Lendlease say all four units have been let, to a combination of big names and independents.)
