the loss of 40 jobs, ru­mours per­sisted dis­count re­tail­ers B&M would take over the site.

They re­fused to com­ment on spe­cific stores but said they were ac­tively pur­su­ing new sites across North Wales.

TK Maxx con­firmed it will take over from Sel­don’s Su­per­bowl on Mostyn Champ­neys, with the spring a likely open­ing date.

Star­bucks and a large North Wales Beds out­let, open­ing on Jan­uary 27, have taken premises at the bot­tom end of town.

“We have had a cracking start with Star­bucks,” said owner Acky Khan. “My feel­ing is that Mostyn Street will get stronger and stronger over the next cou­ple of years.”

Premier Inn and Ital­ian restau­rant chain Prezzo are com­mit­ted to the Tudno Cas­tle site, with more units to let next door.

On Glod­daeth Street, Trav­elodge will open in early 2015.

Per­fect Dreams has moved into Up­per Mostyn Street, as has An­thony Flint Es­tate Agents and a new, Por­tuguese restau­rant will open up in the New Year.

“We are ex­tremely pleased with the sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment we have made and can al­ready see the re­wards as the business has grown in a few short weeks,” said es­tate agent An­thony Flint.

Ed­ward Hiller re­vealed plans for the for­mer Vol­lams shop on Glod­daeth Street, with three more re­tail units also un­der of­fer.

“There is con­sid­er­able in­ter­est in a num­ber of units owned by the es­tate and we’re be­ing ap­proached by peo­ple seek­ing to open in the town as well as those who want to de­velop ex­ist­ing busi­nesses,” he said.

“Things can change quickly, but I sense the di­rec­tion in the medium term is sig­nif­i­cantly pos­i­tive.”
