Specsavers’ new store at Bradley Stoke’s Willow Brook Centre is set to open on Monday 5th October, according to Centre Manager Scott Lahive.
The opticians group, revealed as a new tenant in July, plans to open in mall unit 4 (to the left of the Carphone Warehouse outlet) on Monday 5th October.
Shopfitters have been working on the inside of the store for the last few weeks and “opening soon” artwork has now appeared on the unit’s frontage.
When open, the new outlet will operate in direct competition with the Tesco Opticians department within the Tesco Extra store that it faces, which has been trading since the Willow Brook Centre opened last year.
Property consultants Alder King have disclosed that Specsavers have taken a ten year lease on the unit, which extends to approximately 1,750 sq ft.
The consultants also say that Pets at Home, also confirmed as new tenants in July, will “begin the fit out of their new unit shortly”. The pet superstore will operate from unit 5 of the retail terrace, where Brantano is currently the only other trader.
