Trio of brands sign up to Manchester's University Green

Bruntwood and The University of Manchester have revealed that the Co-op, Loungers and Five Guys will be joining the line-up at the new University Green retail and leisure destination, which forms part of the university’s £1 billion campus redevelopment.

Co-op Food has signed up to take a 4,656 square foot unit for a new shop that will feature an in-store bakery, locally sourced products and a focus on fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas and essential items.

Chris Moss, regional acquisitions manager at the Co-op, said: “The scale of this development was a very attractive proposition and something we were keen to be involved in. We’re delighted to have the opportunity to provide students and shoppers with our wide range of award-winning food, in a store designed to be easy to use for everyone.”

Meanwhile, restaurant and bar chain Loungers will occupy a 3,175 square foot unit and the Five Guys American burger brand will open a 3,175 square foot ground floor restaurant on the site.

All units are due to open in summer 2018.

James Tootle, retail surveyor at Bruntwood, said: “We are so pleased to secure such well known, popular brands at University Green. These new additions reflect our desire to provide an exciting retail and leisure line-up, and we have no doubt they will be well received by the diverse population we have on Oxford Road.”

When complete next year University Green will provide 40,000 square feet of retail and leisure space.

The news follows the first wave of signings including a new location for long-standing local bookshop, Blackwell’s.
