Smyths Toys to open at Valley Retail Park

TDK Commercial Property Consultants are delighted to confirm the letting of the last remaining space at Valley Retail Park to Smyths Toys.

Smyths Toys will occupy 25,000 sq ft of space with the store opening in July 2016. TDK Commercial Property Consultants, acting on behalf of AEW UK REIT PLC, negotiated the letting and this follows on from the recent successful opening of Go Outdoors 45,000 sq ft flagship store at the Park.

Mark Thallon, Partner at TDK said “When we advised AEW in the acquisition, we had a clear strategy to identify certain retailers who would reenergize the scheme and attract footfall to what is a fantastic location. The addition of Smyths Toys to Valley Retail Park will complement Go Outdoors and we are delighted that they have chosen Valley Retail Park for their latest store. The scheme is now fully let and together with existing tenants Harveys, Halfords and Harry Corry, this completes an excellent turnaround for the Park in less than 12 months since AEW acquired it”

Andrew Playfer from AEW said “the addition of Smyths Toys to Valley Retail Park completes our initial strategy to reinvigorate the Park following our purchase last year.”

AEW UK REIT PLC acquired Valley Retail Park, Newtownabbey in Belfast for GBP 7.15 million.
