But as of today (November 5) the store has yet to open its doors to the public, with work continuing within the store.

And Costa has yet to comment on the exact opening date following numerous approaches by the Post.

Signs are visible outside the cafe saying it is “coming soon” and one onlooker said an opening “looks imminent”.

Elsewhere on the retail park, B&M will open its doors to the public on Thursday (November 7).

Signage on the Subway store have also been seen being put in place ahead of its yet-to-be-announced opening.

Greggs and Burger King are also coming to the retail park.

Following publication of this article, Costa confirmed the coffee shop is opening its doors on Thursday, November 7.
