Mock up of Poundstretcher signage on Unit 2B.

The former B&Q building in Fox Den Road, Stoke Gifford looks likely to become fully occupied once again by early next year following recent announcements from two major retailers.

Following the subdivision of the property into four separate units (1, 2A, 2B & 3), DW Fitness opened in unit 3 (closest to the Ring Road) in January 2017. Variety store The Range has since moved into unit 1, leaving the middle two units, 2A and 2B still to be occupied.

Shopfitters have been working inside unit 2B in recent weeks and it is has recently been confirmed that discount variety store Poundstretcher will open here on Thursday 9th November.

Back in September 2016, the Journal reported that a document submitted as part of a planning application suggested that discount food retailer Lidl was considering opening a store at the site and the firm has now confirmed its intention to open in unit 2A in early 2018.

A Lidl spokesperson told the Journal:

“Fitting-out of the new store is expected to begin before the end of the year, with a view to opening in spring next year.”

“The store will have a 1,485m² sales area and there are plans to create up to 40 new jobs.”

Lidl UK’s Regional head of property, Glen Stidever, commented:

“We are delighted to be opening a new store in Stoke Gifford, which marks another milestone in our ambitious store expansion programme. We look forward to getting started on construction and opening our doors in the not too distant future.”
