'Coronation Street' to introduce 'Cash Converters-style' shop

By
Coronation Street producers are reportedly going introduce a Cash Converters-style store to the serial.

ITV soap bosses are said to be launching a new shop onto the street in order to reflect credit-crunch Britain, according to the Sunday Mirror.

Cast members and staff have apparently been asked to donate unwanted items to use in the shop's display as a way of saving money.

A memo has allegedly been sent to crew members for unused cameras, laptops, computers, game consoles and other electrical goods.

A show insider said: "Executives want the new-look Coronation Street to reflect the modern high street. And most of them now have a cut-price store where you can get a bargain.

"Bosses are asking for those on the show to donate items because there has been pressure to try and keep the cost of the move to a minimum.

"Both cast and crew are being asked to look in the loft for anything they might be able to pass on."

The move is said to be part of the ITV soap's relocation to Salford Quays.

Back in February, it was rumoured that Coronation Street will begin shooting in 3D.
