West One Retail Park

Lidl reveals plans for Eccles supermarket

The retailer has exchanged contracts with Frogmore to bring forward its latest store in the region at West One Retail Park in Eccles.

Lidl is proposing to build a 14,000 sq ft food store at the retail park, which includes Iceland Food Warehouse, The Range, Home Bargains, Puregym, Carphone Warehouse, and Smyths among its tenants. A planning application for the store, understood to be within two vacant retail units, has now been submitted to Salford City Council.

The retail park is off Junction 2 of the M602, one of the main routes into Manchester city centre. The 151,500 sq ft development is owned by Frogmore; Savills and CSP Retail are the retained agents.

Lidl’s regional head of property Nick Harvey said: “We are delighted to be proposing a new store on West One Retail Park, which marks another milestone in our ambitious store expansion programme. We’ve seen incredible demand for Lidl stores across the country and look forward to offering our quality products and incredible value to shoppers in and around Eccles.”

Other stores the retailer has planned in the region are in Workington, Blackburn, Winton, Oldham, Bromborough, and Ormskirk. It is also planning to open a store next to Homebase at Altrincham Retail Park.

You need to modernise as floor space has been in m² since 1995. The surfaces quoted are essentially incomprehensible as nobody has been taught sqft since the 1960s!
