THE former Marks and Spencers store in Huntingdon could be getting new tenants after more than two years boarded up.

The British Heart Foundation has confirmed it is looking at opening a furniture store in the town, though would not give details on the potential site.

However, a reliable source said the charity is looking to move into the former M&S shop, which closed in March 2009.

A BHF spokesman said: "I understand there is interest in a commercial property in the town. We are currently completing the legal acquisition of the store.

"If it does happen, it will not open until April or May next year."

Meanwhile, weekly payment store Brighthouse could not confirm they were looking to move into the former Sports and Fashion store.
