The last empty standalone pod at Monks Cross Shopping Park in York looks set to be filled.
The unit is earmarked to become the latest Costa Coffee outlet.
It will join Greggs, Cooplands and Holland & Barrett in the pods, which were added after a major refurb of the shopping centre.
Planning permission is being sought to add all the familiar Costa Coffee branding to the unit.
According to the plans, there will be an outdoor seating area with parasols, within fabric barriers.
Monks Cross already has a small Costa branch. This will close and staff move into the new unit.
A Costa Coffee spokesperson, said: “We can confirm that we are moving our Costa Coffee store to a new location on Monks Cross Shopping Park, York, with the new store set to open in late August 2022.
“All team members from the current Costa Coffee store situated on the retail park will move to the new store when it opens. We look forward to sharing further details of this new store opening in due course.”
There is also a Costa close by at Vangarde.
