An empty shop in the middle of a town centre is set to be reopened by a national restaurant chain.

Up to 10 new jobs will be created by Subway which is planning to open a food outlet in Stowmarket this month. The premises in the Market Place, which used to be a Cherry Tree Butchers, has remained empty since 2012.

Deputy town mayor Gerard Brewster said: “An empty shop does not help the other businesses around so this is to be welcomed.”

Planning permission for two external signs at the shop have been approved by Mid Suffolk District Council.

Bob Dalgarno, regional development agent for Subway, said: “We can confirm that a new SUBWAY® store is due to open in Stowmarket in January. The centrally located store will employ up to ten full and part time staff, providing a boost to the local economy.

“To help reduce litter, stores have the option of using a sticker to individually wrapped subs (sandwiches) which eliminates the need for a bag. All franchisees are local business people who strive and work to be active members of their communities.”
