B&M Retail opens at Edge Lane, Liverpool

Published:  05 August, 2015

B&M has opened its 30,000-sq ft store on Edge Lane in Liverpool having signed an eight-year lease with The Derwent Group on the former MFI unit

Demolition works have taken place in the surrounding area to significantly increase the availability of parking which now stands at 206 spaces. B&M shares the site with a well-established Halfords store.

This letting and refurbishment works form part of the first stage of the redevelopment of Derwent’s Edge Lane retail park estate and enhances the frontage and appearance along the main arterial route of Edge Lane into Liverpool city centre, contributing to the wider regeneration of this area of the city.

The Derwent Group has consent for a major retail and leisure scheme on the other side of Edge Lane and is actively engaging with the key retail tenants with support from the City Council.

James Maule-Ffinch, senior asset manager at Derwent, said: “B&M’s opening is great news for Edge Lane and for the surrounding area and we’re confident that this will kick-start our wider retail development plans there.”

Agents for the Edge Lane retail park estate are McMullen Wilson and Petch & Co.
