HUNTINGDON is set to get a new coffee shop next month, but shoppers still do not know who will occupy the flagship new store in the High Street.
Starbucks expects to employ 15 people when it opens, it hopes, in Chequers Walk on September 10, with its range of syrups, teas, hot chocolate and 20 "frappuccino" varieties, as well as sandwiches and other snacks.
"The number of options in our whole [coffee] bean range varies as it depends on crop cycles, but on average we will offer 15-20 varieties of whole bean coffee available in our stores," said a company spokesman.
"We're really excited to be opening a new store in Chequers Court and are looking forward to becoming part of the community here.
"Our plan is to employ around 15 partners (what we call employees) from the local area.
"We hope the store will be a real asset to the neighbourhood, offering somewhere between work and home where people can relax on their own or with friends over a cup of coffee."

The developer, Churchmanor Estates, which has spent the past year tearing down and re-building the High Street end of the 1960s Chequers Court development, hopes to sign up a tenant for its flagship store on the corner of the High Street shortly, director Howard White told The Hunts Post this week.
Plans for a comprehensive redevelopment of the rest of the former Government-offices site, including a new multi-storey car park, are expected late this year or early in 2008.
