POUNDSTORE LAUNCHES BEDWORTH BRANCH HAVING AGREED LEASE ON ALL SAINTS SQUARE SITE
Poundstore has taken on a prime retail location in Bedworth as part of its UK-wide expansion, and is set to open its doors this weekend.
The discount retailer has taken out a 10 year-lease on 6 All Saints Square.
David Walton, Head of Retail, negotiated the deal, and said that the team was particularly pleased with the latest store location.
“This is a first-class location and we couldn’t have chosen a better time to launch. This is a two-storey property offering just under 12,000 sq ft of sales and storage space, perfectly located on the corner of All Saints Square and Market Place at the heart of Bedworth Town Centre.
“With neighbouring occupiers including Boots, Thorntons, Greggs and high street banks, there are high levels of footfall in the square, not to mention excellent transport links courtesy of Bedworth Railway Station and central bus stops.
“Launching just two weekends before Christmas guarantees particularly high numbers of shoppers in the town, and we anticipate excellent visitor statistics on its opening weekend. We are delighted to have secured such a well-appointed site on Poundstore’s behalf within Warwickshire, and we will continue to identify suitable sites around the UK and negotiate terms on the chain’s behalf as the retailer continues its expansion,” he added.
The new store has secured 30 new jobs for the town.
