The former Brittain & Hobbs store which could soon become a Wetherspoon
Plans for a national pub chain to set up shop in Sheerness appear to be moving forward.
How the former Brittain & Hobbs could look as a Wetherspoon pub
Last month we reported how the Times Guardian had learned Wetherspoon is looking at the former electrical shop Brittain & Hobbs, pictured, in the High Street.
The pub company is expected to complete a sale sometime next week but are staying tight lipped on any details.
It would still need planning permission and licensing if the deal does go ahead.
Brittain & Hobbs went into liquidation in January 2012 after nearly 40 years of trading and the building has been empty since then.
Watford-based Wetherspoon has become known for offering low prices on food and alcohol and has almost 800 branches in the UK.
