Health food retailer Holland & Barrett is set to have a store in St Neots High Street, creating six jobs.

It will open in the former Burton ­menswear store on January 29 and will sell a range of healthy food as well as ethical products such as ­natural skincare, make-up and aromatherapy products which are free of chemical additives.

There will be a pick and mix stall of fruit, nuts and seeds, and a mix-and-go bar for sports enthusiasts to purchase protein shakes.

Shoppers will also be able to talk to staff in a ­consultation area about the latest health foods for special diets, including recommendations for ­vegetarians, vegans, and those who are diabetic or suffer from Coeliac disease.

Holland & Barrett's group brand manager Emma Hobbs said: "We look forward to welcoming new customers to our latest store and hope to become the destination of choice for high quality, healthy, natural products at ­excellent prices."

Burton meanswear closed in October.
