Value retailer The Works has appointed property advisor GCW to help it find stores across the south east of England.
Currently trading from over 530 stores nationwide, The Works is considering opportunities in towns across the south east for new outlets/relocations, as part of the ongoing management of its UK wide store portfolio. Ideal locations will be in prime high streets or shopping centres, and store sizes need to be 1,500 – 2,000 sq. ft. ground floor sales, with 500 sq. ft. of ancillary space.
Jeremy Smith, Property Director at The Works commented: “I look forward to working with GCW in these exciting times for our business. We have had great success opening stores in this part of the country and I am keen to further optimise our store locations in this key region as part of the ongoing management of our whole portfolio.”
Gareth Storer of GCW said: “The Works is a popular brand with shoppers and we are already engaged in talks with a number of landlords.”
The Works sells a wide range of books, art and craft materials, gifts, toys and games, and stationery.
