A WESTON restaurant could be sold for a six-figure sum – while other businesses have been opening or expanding across the town centre.

Flute De Paris, a former French eatery in Oxford Street, has been listed for £199,500 by agents Stephen & Co and is currently under offer.

The sale includes the ground floor restaurant as well as first floor offices and a separate second floor.

Charlie’s Sweet Factory, a confectionary store, is now open at the site of the former Grand Central Hotel in Beach Road, run by Berrow firm Animal Farm Adventure Park.

A new bar, E VI Late Bar & Lounge, opened in Richmond Street on Saturday, while The Fragrance Shop, part of a national perfume and aftershave chain, has opened in the Sovereign Shopping Centre.

It replaced Sonyx, a handbag and fashion accessory store which has moved to a larger unit in the same centre as part of an expansion.

A new business is also set to open at the former site of Ammos in Walliscote Road – a sign in the window states ‘Mythos coming soon’.

“We have new businesses like a sandwich shop, another games shop, and two to three more little furniture shops.
