A new food outlet is set to open in a Rugby town centre.

Abbies will open in one of the vacant units in the Swan Centre near Asda.

It is thought that the new business will be a convenient food outlet selling hot and cold food and drinks.

Building work has already begun to refit the unit.

NYO, a contemporary gift and homeware shop, which opened towards the end of last year in a temporary unit in the Swan Centre, is also due to relocate next door to Abbies.

Aftab Gaffar, managing director at Rugby First, said the new businesses were ‘something to look forward to’.

He added that since the start of the year there has been an increase in sales by 2.23 per cent.

He said: “I think the retailers have been cautious with the amount of sale items they have on offer. Also nationally a record amount of online shopping was done, so it’s important to ensure businesses have some online presence.”
