Greggs announced as tenant at Hinckley retail development

Harris Lamb has secured Greggs, a popular on-the-go food option, as the tenant for a recently established retail area in Hinckley.

The new retail unit, spanning 1,200 sq ft, is one of two units within a newly-developed location built by HDD developers and later acquired by the Heart of England Co-Operative Society.

Following the completion of the Fieldfare road development earlier this year, the Heart of England Co-Operative established a 4,3000 sq ft convince store at the site.

Afterwards, they assigned Harris Lamb’s retail team with the task of locating a tenant for the adjoining 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.”
