Domino’s Pizza is planning to open at the Willow Brook Centre in Bradley Stoke, creating between 25 and 30 new jobs.
Negotiations are now in the final stages and due to complete this month, with an opening proposed for November 2012.
The local pizza delivery expert will be taking a 1,400 sq. ft. unit in the Town Square that was formerly Simpson’s Fish & Chips.
Willow Brook Centre Manager Scott Lahive said:
“We are really looking forward to welcoming Domino’s which will be great for visitors to the centre and also serve the local community with its delivery service. It’s great to see another food operator so keen to move into the centre.”
An earlier attempt by Domino’s to open an outlet at the Willow Brook Centre was scuppered by a South Gloucestershire Council planning committee in 2011, when it refused the firm permission to change the designated use of a “vacant” garage on the corner of the centre’s access road to class A5 (hot food takeaway).
The arrival of Domino’s will restore the centre’s retail occupancy level to 100%, following Poundworld’s recent occupation of the former Peacocks unit.
Footfall at the Willow Brook Centre is due to top 4.5 million per annum by the end of 2012, adding up to 17.5 million since the centre opened in October 2008.
