WORK has started to convert a former toy shop in Yate Shopping Centre into three small retail units.

The Entertainer store in West Walk has been empty for several years.

Centre manager Andrew Lowrey said the demand for larger sized units had fallen so the premises was being split up to meet current demand, with three potential operators in the picture.

On the other side of the complex, at the entrance to the Yate Riverside extension, a new coffee pod will be built - the final piece of construction on the site.

Mr Lowrey said: “These are exciting times for the centre as we fill the various unit vacancies but, importantly, we are now seeing a lot of inquiries from operators wanting to set up in Yate.”.
