The Co-operative stages property networking event in Bristol
The Co-operative Food is staging a networking event in Bristol on Tuesday 1 April, to target new stores across the South West 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 Mercure Holland House Hotel and Spa from 11.30 – 14.00.
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 over 400 in the South West, open stores in both high street and local community locations.
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.
Gareth Dexter, Acquisitions Manager for the South West, 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 the South West.
“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:
• Mercure Holland House Hotel and Spa, Redcliffe Hill, Bristol, BS1 6SQ from 11.30 – 14.00, and will include a buffet lunch
