Property fund AEW has bought a former tea factory in Crewe for £10.4m.

The fund has snapped up the two warehouses totalling 346,000 sq ft, formerly owned by the Co-operative Group. One building is currently let to Bargain Booze, which has its headquarters at the development, with the other let to wireless technology firm Brightstar 20:20.
