Maple Grove Developments, part of the Eric Wright Group, has secured lettings to Home Bargains. Greggs and Card Factory at its £13m retail development in Hattersley, Tameside.
Home Bargains is the largest deal, accounting for 15,000 sq ft, with bakery chain Greggs signing for 1,000 sq ft and Card Factory 1,250 sq ft.
Hattersley Retail Park secured reserved matters approval in July 2018 and is to be anchored by a 19,310 sq ft Lidl store. Costa has signed for a 1,800 sq ft drive-thru unit. The latest deals mean that three units remain, of 1,720 sq ft, 3,200 sq ft and 6,900 sq ft.
The district centre has been designed by Yorkshire architect Bowman Riley. Existing structures on the site will be demolished ahead of construction.
Andrew Dewhurst, development director at Maple Grove Developments, said: “Our ability to bring national retailers to Hattersley Retail Park underlines the scheme’s strengths. Being located within an area of housing growth means the park can serve the new and existing local residents as well as providing crucial employment opportunities for this area of Greater Manchester.
“We remain absolutely committed to this site and are looking to start construction in the summer with a view to stores being open for trading by Christmas 2020.”
Jon Brady at Brady’s, joint agents for the scheme with Reid Rose Gregory, added: “Fronting the very busy A560 Stockport Road at the end of the M67 means that the park benefits from a huge amount of passing trade. Tesco Extra, Premier Inn and McDonalds are already established in this locality and Hattersley Retail Park will further add to the offer here.”
