SKELMERSDALE could soon have its very own blend of coffee when a new coffee shop opens at the Concourse shopping centre.
Siesta Coffee is to open an outlet in the town after agreeing a 10-year lease for unit 110, a 1,343 sq. ft. space on the ground floor of the centre, adjacent to pizza giant Domino’s.
Father and son directors, Gary and Ryan Stainsby, said they are excited to bring the brand to Skelmersdale complementing their existing coffee shops in New Aycliffe, Bootle New Strand Station in Liverpool, and Peterlee, which is due to open in the spring/summer.
Ryan said: “The new shop heralds another exciting chapter in the growth story of Siesta Coffee and we’re looking forward to bringing our unique blends to the Concourse shopping centre.
“We will be manufacturing our own beans at the Aycliffe site, using our very own designated roaster, and we will be rolling out signature pieces and touches for every branch, so it will be a unique experience wherever you go.”
News of Siesta Coffee’s arrival comes just weeks after Poundland opened a bigger store in the centre, cementing its commitment to retailing in the town.
Fit-out is expected to start immediately on transforming the unit into a coffee shop, with an anticipated opening in the spring.
Centre manager, Gary Mitchell, said: “It’s great to welcome another great leisure facility to the Concourse shopping centre, on top of the growing retail offer here, and it’s good news for our customers. We’re looking forward to welcoming Siesta Coffee.”
