Fans of all things cheese and toasted soon won’t be able to get their Subway fix at Kettering’s High Street branch.
The sandwich giant has confirmed the store at numbers 15-17, next to HSBC, is to close on July 1.
But there are already plans to open a new store to “deliver a better experience for customers”.
A spokesman for Subway said: “We can confirm that the Subway store at High Street, Kettering, will be closing on July 1.
“The franchise owner is actively looking for a new location to open a store in the new Fresh Forward decor and deliver a better experience for customers in Kettering.
“The franchise owner looks forward to sharing further updates with the local community and to welcoming loyal customers back to his store once a new location has been secured.”
There are three other Subway stores in Kettering – in Silver Street, Northfield Avenue and Linnell Way – with another found in the petrol station near the police building just off the A43.
It’s hoped the High Street unit won’t be empty for long with plans already submitted to Kettering Council to make use of it.
Applicants Fortress Two Limited want to change part of the ground floor to a flat. It would reduce the retail area from about 150 sq m to 90 sq m

The plans say it would lend itself to either a restaurant or cafe or use as a financial services unit.
Planning documents added that any use of the unit after 6pm – when Subway currently shuts – would be beneficial for the area of the town centre.
