New Kabin and Corner Shop exteriors revealed

Picture from @craiggazeyfans on Twitter
Pictures of the exteriors of Coronation Street's Corner Shop and The Kabin have surfaced on the internet.

The Kabin has dropped its Post Office branding by the looks of things (about time too, since I can't remember the last time we saw the Post Office counter in there), so The Kabin is once again a newsagents, just like it used to be.

The Corner Shop has taken a more realistic look than the last Corner Shop, by looking more like you'd expect a Corner Shop to look. I have to say I like the windows - a good way of hiding the fact that the interior set isn't actually inside there.

All that is left to reopen now is the Joinery, and of course, No.13 still needs to be rebuilt, as it's still sat there in its burnt state.

See more pics of the set here on @katkellyfans fan page.

The Kabin looks very like it used to from the outside. Good to see it mended!

Have some of the orginal reclaimed bricks from the building of the 1982 set been used under the window at the Corner Shop? They don't look like new bricks to me.

i hate the font on the title "The Kabin" They should of changed it to mark a new era, and that noris is running it.

It does look rather old fashioned, but that seems to be the look they wanted xD

Purely because I live with the grammar king, if that shop belongs to Dev AND Sunita, shouldn't it be Alahans'...?!

Why couldnt Div and Dumbo sell the Weatherfield shop and move to their Ullswater one, that way we could get fresh and interesting characters instead of these two bores.

i agree about dev and sunita so boring and sorry but jimmi cant act to save his life he whoudl have been killed off in the crash

Nurse Florence, I think the main sign says (or did before) D&S Alahan's so the signs on the windows could be correct.

Chewy said...

I think it's full name is "D&S Alahan's Corner Shop"

It's good to see The Kabin rebuilt but it looks old fashioned i liked it how it was before the tram crash.
I hope they put the post office sign back up on the Kabin it don't look right without seeing it.
I wish Rita buys the Kabin back, to me it's still her shop. i know norris has bought the Kabin off Rita but really it's still her shop.
