Former Blockbuster store could become Papa John's pizza takeaway

First published in News by , Reporter

Plans have been submitted to turn an empty shop into a pizza takeaway.

Papa John’s Ltd, a pizza company, have submitted plans to Braintree Council to change the signs at the former Blockbuster store in Rayne Road, Braintree.

It is understood that the firm does not have to apply for a change of use because the building already has planning permission for a retail store.

See this week's Braintree and Witham Times for the full story.

are Brainless and Witless sure it is Rayne Road?, the Witham shop is shut but

There is better news for staff at the store in Rayne Road, Braintree, which will continue to operate as normal after it was included in the Gordon Brothers buy-out.

A Gordon Brothers spokesman said: “It will be business as usual for the shops we have acquired, with all jobs still there.”

Definitely Rayne Road 'PP'.

Check out the BDC Planning Website.

You can see a picture of the current Blockbuster Store superimposed with Papa John logos and livery.
