Home Bargains is one of the fastest growing retailers in the UK with an acquisition programme in excess of 50 new stores per annum. To aid their growth in the Midlands and South B8 Real Estate were appointed to undertake a search for a site or building in the southern half of the UK.
Undertaking an extensive search and advising on the relative merits of each opportunity, B8RE produced a shortlist of sites and negotiated the acquisition of a 64 acre site at Amesbury in Wiltshire, adjacent to the A303 near to Stonehenge.
The site was purchased from Clowes Developments/Barwood Developments on a freehold basis which enabled the construction of a 700,000 sq ft distribution facility together with training centre and expansion land.
The deal demonstrates B8 Real Estate’ ability to operate throughout the UK using our extensive knowledge of the UK.
