Furniture retailer will be piloting its ‘small store’ format for the first time in the UK at Springkerse Retail Park
DFS has agreed a new 15-year lease on Unit 6 at the park, which comprises 10,020 sq ft (931 sq m). and will open in December this year.
Totalling 300,000 sq ft, Springkerse is Stirling’s only retail warehouse location. Phase 1 is anchored by B&Q and Morrisons with other occupiers including Currys, Pets at Home and Halfords.
Mike Spens, retail director at Savills, letting agent on behalf of LaSalle Investment Mnaagement, said: “DFS will be a great asset to the already strong tenant line up at Springkerse Retail Park and we are very pleased that it has selected the scheme to trial its first small store format in the United Kingdom demonstrating the park’s dominant retail position in Scotland.”
DFS was represented by BNP Paribas Real Estate.
