APOPULAR patisserie chain looks set to open in Southport. According to Patisserie Valerie’s website, they are opening a branch at 365 Lord Street.
The site was formerly occupied by women’s clothing and accessories store Monsoon/Accessorize, which closed last year. The building, which remains on the market - though ‘under offer’ - with Mason Owen estate agents, is listed on Rightmove for £3,333 pcm.
The popular bakery chain bills its eateries as ‘havens of self indulgence’, featuring quality cakes, patisserie, continental breakfasts, lunches and teas and coffees.
If the patisserie does indeed open at 365 Lord Street, it’ll be a stone’s throw from the new Bistrot Pierre - set to open on the former Russell and Bromley site on Lord Street in the coming months.
Town centre councillor David Barton said: “Once again it is a true pleasure to see new inward investment in the Southport town centre
through the addition of another long-established high street name.
“I am delighted to see another unit along Central Lord Street being reoccupied and welcome the team to our Classic Resort town.”
A spokesperson for Patiserrie Valerie told the Visiter: “We do not have a statement to release yet. The store is not set to open until later on in the year.”
