Grocery store grabs 16,000 sq ft in Liverpool city centre
Taking over the former B&M superstore on London Road, the Taza Supermarket will open its doors later this month.
Specialising in Turkish, Asian, Middle Eastern, and Eastern European food, Taza Supermarket acquired the 16,000 sq ft London Road store from B&M for £1.5m in a direct deal.
The building has been vacant since B&M closed in January 2020.
Located at 145-163 London Road, the store will be Taza’s first in the North West. The supermarket was founded in Birmingham.
Ahmed Rasool, director of Taza Supermarket, said: “London Road is the perfect place for us to open our Taza Supermarket.
“Rich in retail history, it is now a zone that encourages and supports independent businesses just like ours”, he continued.
“Close to both universities, the city’s renowned cultural quarter, and landmarks like the Empire Theatre, it is a place where customers can seek out purchases, which offer them a much wider variety than in traditional retailers.”
Zardashi Kadir, fellow director of Taza Supermarket, added: “Retail of any kind is a very challenging sector of the economy right now, and so you have to bring something a little bit different to attract the attention of consumers, who are already well-provided for in terms of well-known, nationally branded outlets.
“Taza Supermarket has its own unique profile, which is all about attracting customers who want to add to their retail experience.”
