Another store has opened at a South Yorkshire retail park which has seen a disused colliery turned into a shopping development.

Blakemore Retail, part of the Spar convenience store group, has opened a new 4,000sq ft shop at the Onyx Retail Park in Wath On Dearne, Rotherham.

The addition is part of the site’s second phase of construction and sees the store sit alongside several other shops and food outlets.

Regional manager for Blakemore John Brooks, said: “The Onyx Retail Park is an ideal site for our brand because of the huge potential for growth in the area. Footfall since opening in February is about what we expected and we believe this will increase significantly as the surrounding area develops.”
