Giant Redditch town centre store on the market

Redditch Town Centre

One of Redditch’s best known and biggest town centre retail properties is being brought to the market after a decision by British Heart Foundation to move premises.

Known to many still as “Tony’s Handyman” after the store that occupied the site for decades, the three storey, 10,143 sq ft unit at 7, 8 and 9 Market Place fronts on to Church Green in the heart of Redditch.

The building was originally built for Woolworths some 60 years ago and is now on the market to let or for sale with Redditch experts, John Truslove.

Director Ian Parker said: “This is an interesting building in the most central location in Redditch. It is close to all the town’s main facilities, including Redditch Town Hall and Redditch Public Library, with the Kingfisher Centre and its extensive retail offering next door.

“It has a huge frontage measuring over 56 feet and the ground floor extends back 108 feet, giving a very large sales area of 5,500 sq ft.”

At present the property is on the market with a quoting rental of £60,000 per annum for the 10,143 sq ft, but the owners will consider a sale.

Ian Parker added: “It currently has A1 retail permission but it might be suitable for A3 use in the restaurant/bar sector.

“This is the first time in many years that a retail unit this size has come on the market around Church Green and Market Place and we are keen to talk to retailers and other leisure users with the imagination and flair to take advantage of the property’s premium location.”
