Coronation Street fans will be seeing a Co-op and Costa Coffee open on the cobbles later this year. ITV made the announcement today (January 30), confirming that it has agreed two significant new partnerships with both brands for the first time ever. The Co-op and Costa Coffee stores will be open for business from Spring 2018 and are part of the extended Weatherfield set. Both facades will be fully branded, with other assets such as posters, bags and cups integrated across the iconic soap. The new agreements also include digital and brand-licensing aspects for both companies, enabling them to use Coronation Street assets and extend the partnership off-air. While the exciting news has only come to light today, the show already seems to be sowing the seeds for the stores being seen on screen for the first time, with Co-op bags and Costa cups being featured in recent episodes. ITV Sales Director Mark Trinder said: "The expansion of the Coronation Street set has given us a great opportunity to feature branded shop facades as more of Weatherfield is opened up to viewers. "Incorporating product placement on this scale is something we have wanted to do for some time and we're delighted with this exciting opportunity. "We've worked really closely with the Coronation Street team to make sure we've got a great brand fit for Co-op and Costa Coffee with the nation's favourite soap while still ensuring editorial integrity." Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV. CELEBRITIES & GOSSIP
