A KITCHEN retailer is set to move into Llandudno's former Maplin store.

The Mostyn Champneys retail park shop has been empty since May whilst the electronics company went into administration in February 2018.

Now, Wren Kitchens are hoping to move into the vacant unit, with a large showroom displaying 40 kitchens over two floors.

The application put forward for the site, owned by The Hercules Unit Trust (HUT), also wants to see a mezzanine floor built at the unit.

If successful, the plan would see the overall floor space within the store increase from 697m2 to 1162m2.

The move would see the first Wren Kitchen store set up in North Wales, with the current closest site located in Chester. In total, the company has 85 stores situated across the UK.

A statement to support the plan said it would be considered by HUT as 'representing an important element of their overall strategy directed at ensuring Mostyn Champneys realises its full potential as a modern attractive retail park."

PwC, who had been assigned as Maplin's administrator for negotiations over the sale of the retailer, put the store's closure down to "slowdown in consumer spending".
