Iceland to open new store in Halifax

Frozen food retailer Iceland is to open a new store in Halifax.

Situated at 43-45 Market Street, the 6,845 square foot shop will be housed in a former Poundland store.

The new store will anchor the parade which is also home to Dorothy Perkins, Savers, Tesco and Coral.

The shop will be close to The Piece Hall, the recently restored Grade I listed town square, which includes a range of independent retail and leisure operators such as Off the Wall, Gin Lane Shop and House of 925.

Market Street will also benefit from the proposed Piece Gardens project which will include the transformation of the railway station, the addition of a new leisure centre, and the high street becoming pedestrianised by 2022.

The new Iceland store will create 25 new jobs.

Iceland was secured as a tenant by Savills for Scottish Equitable.

Chris Wakefield at Kames, the fund manager on behalf of Scottish Equitable, said: "Scottish Equitable are very pleased to have been able to agree a ten 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."
