Yorkshire law firm advises Iceland on 100th Food Warehouse store buy

Retailer Iceland Foods has been advised by a Yorkshire law firm on the 100th acquisitions of its store format, The Food Warehouse.

The commercial property team from Gordons has handled all store acquisitions for Iceland in England and Wales since 2017.

Sarah Ratcliffe from the team recently dealt with the milestone 100th Food Warehouse store for Iceland, a 10,000 sq ft high-quality retail warehouse store located at Blackpool Retail Park in Blackpool.

During 2018, Iceland opened a total of 45 new stores, including 31 under its Food Warehouse format.

“We continue to be very impressed by the way Gordons consistently deliver for us,” said Iceland’s Property and Acquisitions Director Simon Anderson.

“Their team understand our requirements and they share our sense of urgency in getting things done. They are an important part of The Food Warehouse’s continued success.”

Ms Ratcliffe added: “It is hugely rewarding to support Iceland in The Food Warehouse’s continued expansion. They are a fast-growing retailer maximising opportunities in the current market thanks to an fantastic store format, a clear growth strategy and smart property acquisitions.”
