Realis Estates has secured tenants for four out of the five units at its development at 5 Welch Way in Witney almost a month before construction of the scheme is due to be completed.
The latest name added to the line up is Morrisons, which has taken a 3,250 sq ft double unit for a new Morrisons M local store. The supermarket chain will join The Entertainer (2,400 sq ft) and Costa (1,250 sq ft). Realis are in discussion with several popular high street brands, which are interested in the remaining 1,305 sq ft unit.
The Morrisons M local store, which is due to open in June 2013, will sell a range of fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish and bakery as well as a host of day-to-day essentials.
Duncan Mathieson, Managing Director of Realis Estates commented:
“To have secured tenants for four out of the five of the units before the scheme is completed is a fantastic achievement in the current market. The range of operators in this development makes it an important addition to the town and greatly improves the link between High Street and Marriotts Close. We believe we have created the perfect mix for Witney – bringing new operators to the town as well as much needed new jobs.”
