The unit had been home to the Fox Valley Friday and Saturday markets for the last three months, with the Friday market now moving back to the outdoor walkway near Home Bargains.

James Shepherd, estates director at Dransfield Properties, which owns the retail park, said: "From the feedback we have had from our shoppers we are confident the new store will be well received and will certainly bring a new offer to the centre. We look forward to the completed store opening in March."
