B&M bursts into Surrey

AS Retail are delighted to have advised the landlord on securing B&M’s first Surrey store, which is located in Camberley.

The popular discount retailer has opened in the former BHS store on Princess Way, adjacent to The Square Shopping Centre, which comprises a ground floor sales area of 20,369 sq ft plus ancillary accommodation and boasts an extended frontage of over 40m (130 ft).

B&M have over 700 stores in the UK and are a constituent of the FTSE 100 index. They provide customers with a huge variety of products, all under one roof including homewares, health and beauty, DIY, electricals, gifts, toys and a range of garden accessories at very affordable prices.

Andrew Shepherd, Director at AS Retail commented “We are thrilled to have successfully leased this strategically important property in Camberley to B&M after a short marketing campaign. B&M will be an excellent addition to Camberley’s in-town retail offer, driving footfall and bringing an excellent brand to the town which has been desired by the local shoppers. We need to extend a big thanks to both the landlord’s wider team and the B&M team for a smooth and swift transaction.”

AS Retail acted on behalf of the landlord with Burns Property Consultants acted for the tenant.
