Costa Coffee has opened up on North Street this week – despite months of campaigning against the national coffee chain by local businesses.

The store has created up to ten part and full-time job opportunities in the city.

City development manager Alan Weston will meet Costa bosses at the end of June to discuss the company’s role in the city.
