The Co-operative stages property breakfast meeting in Cardiff
The Co-operative Food is staging a breakfast event in Cardiff on Wednesday 2 April, to target new stores across Wales as part of its ongoing acquisitions programme.
Property agents, developers and landlords are invited to meet The Co-operative Food’s property team at the event, which is being held at the Park Plaza Hotel on Greyfriars Road from 08.30 – 11.00. The event will also include a presentation from Bill Chandler, Legal Director at Hill Dickinson and Professional Support Lawyer to the Property and Construction Practice Group.
The Co-operative Food has plans to acquire 100 new stores during 2014, underlining its position as the leading convenience retailer in the UK. The programme will see the business, which already operates 2,800 outlets including 167 in Wales, open stores in both high street and local community locations. Recent store openings in the region include Llandaff North and Pontyclun .
The Co-operative’s strategy is to identify appropriate properties between 2,000sq ft and 4,000sq ft net sales area, particularly in high street and local community locations.
John Hillman, Acquisitions Manager for Wales, said:
“With ambitious plans for 2014, The Co-operative Food is forging ahead with its acquisitions programme to expand its estate, and we are specifically looking for new locations across Wales.
“We are actively searching for new opportunities to grow the business and this is a great chance to meet and work with agents, landlords and developers to identify the right properties in the right locations and in the heart of local communities.”
The networking event will be held at:
• Park Plaza Hotel, Greyfriars Road, Cardiff, CF10 3AL from 08.30 – 11.00
