Standard Life signs TK maxx in Barrow

TK Maxx is to open at Hollywood Retail and Leisure Park, Barrow-in-Furness.

Standard Life Investments UK Property Fund has secured leading clothing and home goods brand TK Maxx as its latest tenant at Hollywood retail and Leisure Park in Barrow-in-Furness.

The retailer has signed a ten-year lease for a new 17,000-sq ft store, in the unit previously occupied by Comet. TK Maxx plans to open its doors later this year, following a full refurbishment of the unit.

Nigel Chapman, fund Manager of Standard Life Investments UK Property Fund said, “It’s testament to the quality of Hollywood retail and leisure park and the strength of the local market that a major international brand such as TK Maxx has chosen its first store in the town to be located at the retail park. This letting to TK Maxx complements the existing retail and leisure mix at the retail park and will be a big draw for the local community.”

Edgerley Simpson Howe and JLL were letting agents and Morgan Williams advised the tenant.
