The KFC branch in Lord Street is to undergo a refit in the weeks to come and has begun making space for new furniture by offloading its old tables, chairs and stools on Facebook.

Multiple listings for the restaurant's familiar red stools and wooden tables appeared on Marketplace yesterday (Thursday, October 14), with the fast-food furniture being given away for free.

The tables and chairs inside the Fleetwood branch have been largely unused during the coronavirus pandemic, with the indoor seating area closed for the past 18 months.
