Poundworld Retail has leased a 10,555 sq ft unit to open its new multi-price format Bargain Buys at a rent of £12.50 per sq ft on a10-year term. Sport Direct has also signed up for 12,511 sq ft on a 10-year lease at £11 per sq ft
Tom Elviss of Aberdeen Asset Management said: “After experiencing the disappointment of 3 tenants entering administration in close succession in early 2013, it is a fantastic turnaround, that we are now fully let with such a strong tenant line up. Their long term commitment to Kingsway Retail Park is great news for the local community”.
The other retailers on the park are Asda, The Range and McDonalds.
