Coronation Street is set to unveil the new Hays Travel branch, which will debut on the ITV soap next week.
The “coming soon” hoarding, has been hiding the store’s build since October 24th.
Hays first announced its partnership with Corrie in May last year, to coincide with The King’s Coronation.
“We are really proud of our ongoing partnership since Hays Travel returned to TV advertising at the start of the year and we’re now delighted to see the opening of the Hays Travel store in Coronation Street, enabling Weatherfield’s residents to have a travel agents on their doorstep for the very first time!” said Jason Spencer, Business Development Director ITV.
“We’re all looking forward to seeing Hays Travel frequently on the cobbles from December, helping make a fabulous brand even more famous across the UK and beyond.”
Dame Irene Hays, owner and chair of Hays Travel, visited the Coronation Street set where she met Peter Fergusson, ITV Business Development Controller and Anthony Privilege, Branch Manager of Hays Travel Prescot – who was selected to be ‘Honorary Manager for the Day’ of Weatherfield’s Hays Travel.
“Our thanks to the team at ITV who worked with our in-house property team on our shop’s design and production,” said Dame Irene.
“The on set branch had to look just like all our Hays Travel shops on high streets across the UK; we are proud of the finished result and look forward to seeing it on TV in December.”
