First out-of-town - Blacks to open in Northampton

The Outdoor Group is to open its first out-of-town Blacks store, taking a 7,530 sq ft (700 sq m) unit on the Riverside Retail Park in Northampton.

The retailer has struck a deal with landlord Isis Property to take a 15-year lease on the former PowerHouse unit for£27 per sq ft (£290 per sq m).

Isis head of out of town retail George Cotton said: 'This is a key letting as part of our strategy to soften the tenant mix, to attract a wider mix of shoppers at this premier park.'

Isis was advised by CBRE. Atis WGS acted on behalf of the Outdoor Group.
