This Saturday will see Costa Halifax celebrate its brand new look as it reopens after a two-week refurbishment.

To commemorate it’s expansion, the store will be hosting an official opening day which will see the coffee shop welcome shoppers with free samples.

Jason Gregg, centre manager, said: “We’re very excited to see Costa’s new look and hope shoppers come along and take advantage of the larger space.”

The former 1,464 sqft unit will now occupy the former Game Station unit to become a total of 2,772 sqft.

The expansion follows a number of developments at Woolshops Shopping Centre including the opening of two new stores, JD and The Works.

With 2,000 coffee shops in the UK and more than 1,200 in 30 overseas markets, Costa were awarded Best Branded Coffee Shop Chain in the UK and Ireland for six years running.
