The Food Warehouse to open in Dover

The Iceland group is to open its Food Warehouse big box format at the St James retail and leisure development in Dover.

Iceland has signed a new 10-year lease on Unit 3Ac, a 10,000-sq ft store in a retail block that is anchored by an M&S Foodhall and Next. The annual agreed rent is £200,000.

Since launching its new ‘big box’ format in 2014, The Food Warehouse has grown to over 50 stores. The new concept is bigger than normal Iceland stores and offers a wider product range, blending a cash-and- carry format with more ‘foodie’ options.
The £53m St James scheme is funded by Legal & General and is being developed by Bond City. Providing 156,915 sq ft of new retail and leisure space, next to the A20, it includes a six-screen Cineworld, 108-bed Travelodge, two dozen shops and restaurants and 445 parking spaces.

It is scheduled to open in February 2018 and is now 87 per cent pre-let.

Tim Hance of HRH Retail, joint letting agent with JLL, said: “This is an important addition to St James and Dover town centre, bringing a fresh new concept store to the mix and significantly extending the range of food shopping at the scheme.”
Mason Partners represented The Food Warehouse.
