Harris Lamb has secured food on-the-go favourite Greggs as the occupier of  a new retail unit in Hinckley.

The 1,200 sq ft premises are  part of a newly developed two-unit site constructed by developers HDD and subsequently purchased by Heart of England Co-Operative Society. 

Further to the Fieldfare Road development being completed earlier this year, Heart of England Co-Operative opened a 4,300 sq ft convenience store at the site, and tasked Harris Lamb’s Retail team with securing a tenant for the neighbouring unit.

David Walton, Head of Retail, said: “This is a prominent roadside unit with an estimated 25,000 vehicles passing its A47 location every day, which attracted significant interest from potential occupiers. Around 850 new homes are being built to the rear of the site, which was a key factor in us identifying it as a suitable location for Heart of England Co-Operative Society in its drive for additional convenience store locations.

“Greggs is a great fit for this location and we are delighted to have completed a new lease with them. Both occupiers complement one another with well-established, quality convenience retail offerings and will benefit from high levels of passing trade,” he added.

Simon Smith of Wright Silverwood advised Greggs on the acquisition. 

The unit is now fitted out and Greggs has opened the shop to the public.
