FROZEN food specialist Farmfoods is set to increase the size of its store in Warrington.

The supermarket, based on School Brow Retail Park in the town centre, is planning to move into the neighbouring unit which has been empty for some time.

It used to house Dreams.

Now Farmfoods has been given planning permission to amalgamate its operation with the empty unit.

Planning documents say the company 'trades well' in the location and has secured a 15-year lease to cover both units.

The other unit at School Brow was occupied by Office Outlet but the office firm went into administration for the second time in May last year.

Planning documents say: "The occupation of the other units makes the site as a whole more attractive to any future occupiers of this larger unit, thereby helping to secure the viability of the development as a whole."
