Changes to distribution at Au Naturale - the homewares division of Glasgow-based Internacionale - have paved the way for further expansion in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the north of England.

The retailer’s retained agent, David Griffin at the Griffin Webster Partnership, said that following the acquisition of the 100,000 sq ft (9,300 sq m) former Levi’s warehouse at Bellshill, north Lanarkshire, the retailer has taken new stores at Magherafelt and Omagh in Northern Ireland and Aberdeen in Scotland.

All three will open before Christmas.

Other recent acquisitions include 15,000 sq ft (1,400 sq m) at Blythswood, Renfrew; 12,000 sq ft (1,115 sq m) on the North Ayrshire retail park in Stevenson; 10,000 sq ft (930 sq m) at St James, Dumbarton; 20,000 sq ft (1,860 sq m) at Queens Drive, Kilmarnnock; 10,000 sq ft (930 sq m) on the Greenock retail park; 8,000 sq ft (745 sq m) at Newtownabbey, Northern Ireland; and 14,800 sq ft (1,375 sq m) at Dudley in the West Midlands.
