CASH Converters, the Huntingdon town centre shop dealing in second-hand goods, will be moving into the High Street in the next few weeks.

The firm will be taking over the former Woolwich Building Society building, which closed last year after a rationalisation by the mortgage-lender's new owner Barclays Bank.

Cash Converters' lease in Chequers Court has expired and will not be renewed ahead of landlord Churchmanor Estates' plans to redevelop the whole north side of Chequers Court after the lease held by HMRC (formerly the Inland Revenue) expires in autumn next year.

A spokesman for Cash Converters said the timing of the move was in the hands of its building contractor, but he hoped it would happen before the end of April.

Churchmanor director Howard White told The Hunts Post: "This is all part of readying the main building for demolition. They [Cash Converters] will move straight into their new premises with no loss of trade. We have put a 'to-let' board up, as their old shop will be let on a temporary short term basis pending demolition."

Churchmanor's plans for redeveloping the area over the next few years, which could be submitted to Huntingdonshire District Council in late 2009 or early the following year, are expected to include larger retail units and a multi-storey car park.
