Costa coffee (owned by Coca Cola) have finally given up the fight to stay open. Costa quickly changed their model to provide purely takeaways, however, trade was almost non existent, so it appears Nationally they took the decision too close its doors. Costa who is now owned by Coca Cola was also concerned about the safety and well being of its staff and customers. It appears that all staff have been paid their normal salary by Coca Cola. If you can’t live without your daily dose of Costa, then the convenance store (Premier) in Newport High Street, (next to boots) are still open and have a Costa coffee machine, so if you are picking up a prescription from Boots nip in and treat yourself.
