A breath of fresh air for retail parks

Out-of-town retail parks are thriving as acquisitive retailers take on the spaces made vacant by previous tenants. Laura Heywood finds out why big-box retailing is back in fashion.

The old adage that one man’s loss is another man’s gain is certainly applicable to out-of-town retail parks.

In the past few years, household names including MFI, Focus DIY, Comet and JJB Sports have disappeared from the UK’s retail parks, but scores of opportunity-hungry retailers have been waiting in the wings. Visit any out-of-town park in the UK and retailers such as B&M, Wren Kitchens, Pets at Home, Poundland, JYSK, Oak Furniture Land and Home Bargains are likely to be among the names that greet you.

Such retailers were quick to act two years ago when numerous administrations, receiverships and declining confidence among some retailers led to an explosion in available space. As soon as the units became available, the race to recycle the second-hand space was on.

Among the biggest winners is B&M, which has been most prolific in taking up space in 2013. According to figures released by property research firm Trevor Wood Associates, the retail chain is the fastest growing retail park tenant, taking 640,000 sq ft in 2012 and 2013, a 56% increase in area since 2011. The discount retailer emerged as the leading acquisitor of former Focus DIY stores. Of the 244 units available after the DIY retailer went into administration in May 2011, B&M has taken 29 as of September 2013. B&Q has acquired 21 units, while Wickes has taken on 18 units, according to research by Trevor Wood Associates.
