Two sign up for Glass Works

Sports Direct and Coffee Boy will take space in Barnsley

Queensberry, in partnership with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, have announced that Sports Direct and Coffee Boy will take space in the £180m town centre scheme, The Glass Works.

The sportswear giant will take 19,600 sq ft set over two floors, moving from its current location elsewhere in the town into a bigger store in The Glass Works. The popular sportswear shop will also bring its fashion arm USC.

Specialist coffee shop, Coffee Boy will take 1,650 sq ft, and will sell a range of high quality coffees, teas, cold drinks, breakfasts, paninis, pizza and a range of cakes and ice cream.

Coffee Boy is set to open on Cheapside before Christmas this year, and Sports Direct will be opening in 2021.

Jocelyn Holmes, senior leasing manager, Queensberry, said: “We wanted to curate a retail and leisure line up that complemented the wider cultural offer in the town centre at the Library and in the new market, to encourage footfall back in to the town from day through to evening. This is therefore a really key win for us, it is really positive that we have been able to integrate Sports Direct in a larger store and are excited to be welcoming Coffee Boy to Barnsley. We are looking forward to moving onward with the next stages as we build on this success further.”
