Furniture Retailer Moves into Cherry Tree Retail Park, Blackpool
Posted on 6th February 2015
A new furniture company has chosen a leading Blackpool retail park as their first outlet location in a nationwide hunt for new stores.
Works are full steam ahead at the former Dreams unit at Cherry Tree Road Retail Park, Blackpool, for Onit Ltd, a new furniture retailer planning an official opening at the end of February.
Onit Ltd, based in the North West with UK wide expansion plans, has been working around the clock on the 8,573 sq ft retail trade showroom which they have taken on a new 10 year lease from landlord Laketime Holidays Ltd. Robert Pinkus & Co. LLP acted on behalf of the landlord.
The Cherry Tree Road property in Marton has created four new full time jobs for the local area and is the first property in their 150 store nationwide rollout programme, the next priority towns and cities being all those within the Granada region.
The out-of-town retail warehouse is located on the popular retail park next to Storeys Carpets, Bensons Beds and a reently opened Barnardo’s retail unit. A 24 hour Asda supermarket is nearby.
Mark Prior, Managing Director of Onit Ltd. said, “Cherry Tree Retail Park ticked all the right boxes for us mainly becuase of the already established home furnishing retailers and a 24 hour Asda based at the park which offer a complementary retail fit for our business.
“Team this with the added benefit of being located on a main arterial route into Blackpool that attracts large tourist visitor numbers, the unit presented a great opportunity that we couldn’t ignore. We have set the benchmark high for all the stores we are hoping to secure on our rollout programme!”
Joe Assalone, Partner at Robert Pinkus & Co. said, “Cherry Tree Retail Park is a very busy retail destination that offer high footfall, great parking allocation and close proximity to passing traffic. South Shore Blackpool favours the bigger format trade showroom retailers and we are delighted we have been able to secure Onit’s first UK store.”
