Aiding the Poundstretcher expansion plan

Harris Lamb’s Retail team is assisting Poundstretcher with its 2017 growth plan.

The discount retail chain aims to launch 50 new stores this year, and Harris Lamb has been retained to help identify and acquire sites.

 .

Head of Retail David walton said: “We’re looking to secure sites both in town centres and in out-of-town retail parks, with sales areas of 5,000-40,000 sq ft. We’re very flexible – we’ll consider both development sites or existing units ready for occupation, and both leasehold or freehold sites.”

He added that while A1 planning consent was preferred, it was not essential.”
