A new Costa store for Westhoughton has been approved by planning officers.
The new coffee shop will open in the former Westhoughton Police Post, on Marsden Street.
It is the first chain coffee shop to open in the town, and is expected to employ eight to 10 full-time staff and will be open Monday to Sunday from 7am to 9pm.
The premises will cater for 135 seated customers, with a planned extension creating further seating space.
Westhoughton town councillor David Wilkinson said: “It is great news that this empty unit will be filled, new jobs will be created and people will have another place to meet up socially.”
