COFFEE fans in Redditch will be able to grab a cup on the go in a matter of weeks.

It comes as Costa Coffee is preparing to open in Trafford Retail Park, in the town.

The coffee house has confirmed it will open its new drive-thru branch - the first of its kind in the town - on October 17.

The chain hopes to be a new pit stop destination for drivers heading in and out of the town.

A Costa Coffee spokesman told the Advertiser: “We’re excited to confirm the opening of a brand new Costa Coffee store on Trafford Park Retail Park on Thursday 17 October.

"We are looking forward to being an active part of the local community, getting involved with events and serving customers our signature, handcrafted coffees.”
