Iceland’s Food Warehouse model is set to open at Hyndburn Retail Park in October 2018
Hyndburn Borough Council has approved Peel Retail Parks’ plan to refurbish a 14,000-sq ft to create a new store for frozen food specialist Food Warehouse. Iceland’s new concept offers a wide range of frozen, chilled, fresh, branded groceries and special household products.
Additionally, Peel has secured a letting to Costa Coffee, which is set to open a drive-through café at the popular Hyndburn retail park, after agreeing a deal on a 1,800-sq ft unit opposite the existing Aldi store. The store is set to open in October 2018.
Mark Whittaker, group property director at Peel Land and Property, said: “The addition of Food Warehouse and the Costa Coffee drive-through, combined with an already strong line up including Aldi, B&M and Smyths, is set to further increase footfall to the retail park, driving repeat visits from our growing audience of convenience shoppers.
“Hyndburn Retail Park is a rapidly evolving retail scheme, strategically located mid-way along the M65 corridor with a local catchment of almost 800,000 shoppers. We expect both Food Warehouse and Costa to trade exceptionally well and look forward to the store opening later this year.”
