We are specialists in the acquisition and disposal of both leasehold and freehold retail property, with two of the partners previously employed at J Sainsbury PLC, and having over 25 years of experience in the retail sector.

We act for a wide variety of developers and retail occupier clients, in a range of locations (High Street, regeneration town centre locations and district centre schemes) delivering a fully integrated service from site development consultancy advice, unit identification and, or letting to handover of property for fit-out.

We have acted for Sainsburys, Tesco, the Co-op, Dominos, Homebase (now Bunnings), Argos, Pets at Home, Specsavers and sold or let to all the main stream food retailers including Aldi and Lidl, as well as many retail High Street names.

The constantly evolving foodstore sector is experiencing continuing change with increasing discounter interest, online trading activity, greater competitiveness and operating cost awareness, and a desire to explore new formats, (smaller and infill stores, “dark” stores, strategic online “pick up” shop units), and resultant subletting opportunities and surplus car park redevelopments.

We deal with property due diligence for major retailers, from single asset and unit purchases to major company/corporate site/store acquisitions. We do this discreetly and liaise closely with clients to expose potential issues and provide practical advice, informing the acquisition or sales process.
