Supermarket chain Iceland to create 25 jobs at Halifax’s Westgate House
Iceland is creating 25 jobs with a new store in Halifax.
Investment firm Scottish Equitable plc announced a deal this morning (August 16) to bring the supermarket chain to 43-45 Market Street, part of the town’s Westgate House building.
Iceland signed a 10-year lease on the 6,845 sq ft unit, formerly occupied by Poundland.
Once operational, it will anchor the parade where other retailers include Tesco, Dorothy Perkins, Coral and Savers.
Chris Wakefield at Kames, fund manager for Scottish Equitable, said: “Scottish Equitable are very pleased to have been able to agree a 10-year lease with Iceland, a strong and highly regarded retailer with a very competitive offer.
“Their presence on Market Street will undoubtedly enhance the retail pitch and act as a draw to shoppers from the much wider area.”
Russell McGill, associate in the Manchester-based retail team at real estate services firm Savills, commented: “We are delighted to have secured Iceland as the newest retailer at Market Street on behalf of our clients, which will further enhance the footfall and offering of the street.”
Property broker Mason Owen represented Iceland.
