Newmarket former Blockbuster could soon become Mid Point café
A Newmarket High Street store, which has stood empty since 2013, could soon be getting a new lease of life.
Town councillors meeting on Monday will consider a planning application to turn the former Blockbuster Video store at 128 High Street into a café.
The proposed restaurant will be called Mid Point and will be run by a chef with more than 20 years’ experience of running his own successful cafe in north London.
It will provide jobs for four full-time and six part-time staff and aims to be open every day.
Councillors will be asked to look at plans for a new shop front for the café which the owner said would enhance the High Street.
