Mountain warehouse to replace former Tewkesbury Superdrug store

When Superdrug closed its doors on Tewkesbury High Street a year ago - no one knew what the future would hold for the premises.

But we can now reveal the grade-two listed building hass been spotted by outdoor brand Mountain Warehouse, whcih has submitted signage plans to Tewkesbury Borough Council.

If approved, the new shop will be the brand's fifth in the county alongside one in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud and Cirencester.

The proposed site is said to be of "historical significance" to Tewkesbury. Dating back to the 16th century, the property was formally a coaching house known as the Swan Hotel.

Documents submitted as part of the application state that "proposed changes to the internal space will not affect the heritage or individuality of the building and will in fact brighten up the existing space whilst retaining the character and historic fabric of the building".

This positive news comes just weeks after Mountain Warehouse CEO claimed it was not all doom and gloom on the high street, as the firm reported its 22 consecutive Christmas of sales growth.
