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.

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’.

Paul Batts - chairman of the town’s Business Improvement District - said: “As far as Orchard Meadows is concerned, it is the fullest it has been for a long time.
“We have new businesses like a sandwich shop, another games shop, and two to three more little furniture shops.
“In the last year or so the numbers are massively up and there are more and more businesses appearing, and there are people from other areas showing an interest as well.”
