The Co-operative stages property networking event in Leeds
The Co-operative Food is staging a networking event in Leeds on Friday 21 March, to target new stores across Yorkshire 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 Epernay on Great George Street 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, open stores in both high street and local community locations. Recent store openings in the region include central Leeds, North Ferriby, Darfield and Addingham.
The UK’s fifth largest food retailer’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.
Tim Hanser, Acquisitions Manager for the north, 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 Yorkshire and the surrounding counties.
“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:
• Epernay, 12 Great George Street, Leeds LS1 3DW, from 11.30 – 14.00, and will include a buffet lunch
