"Its great news that we have been able to help another growing Yorkshire business find the space they need to prosper and create new jobs. "
Matt Jennings, commercial surveyor at Eddisons
The business, which has benefited from a mass move to online shopping in recent months, has seen a 150% growth this year and expects to generate a turnover of £50m for 2020-21. The expansion will also see Furniture And Choice create 40 new jobs.
Matt Jennings, commercial surveyor at Eddisons, which acted for landlord Sirdar Properties, said: “It’s great news that we have been able to help another growing Yorkshire business find the space they need to prosper and create new jobs.
“We had a number of parties interested in the Sirdar Business Park units and it was satisfying to get this one over the line, having worked with Sirdar Properties for many years. The estate has always generated plenty of interest, offering high quality space just a stone’s throw from the M1, and we now have only one new-to-market 18,000 sq ft unit available.”
Sirdar Properties managing director Russell Morris said: “We’re really pleased to have partnered with the Eddisons letting team once again, securing another great Yorkshire company for Sirdar Business Park and bringing with it the very welcome prospect of new jobs for the area.”
Furniture And Choice operations director Mark Saville, said: “The property is on a secure site and perfect in terms of location and size – close to the motorway, making it easy to move our goods quickly; and it’s a single storey unit that’s just right since we have substantial products like sofas and beds. We’re excited about the expansion and the opportunities it’s bringing to Wakefield.”
