signed up Home Bargains to its ?150 million 'Project Jennifer' scheme on
Great Homer Street in Liverpool. St. Modwen has agreed a lease with Home
Bargains to occupy a 20,000sq ft unit at the scheme's District Centre which is
set to open to the public in summer of 2017.
Founded in Liverpool and headquartered within the City, TJ Morris Ltd, the
parent company of Home Bargains, has grown the brand into 1 of the UK's most
popular and highly rated retailers.
Paul Batho, Projects Director at St. Modwen, said:-
"A successful, local
and national brand, TJ Morris is the largest employer on Merseyside and is the
largest independent grocer in the country. We're really pleased to announce its
commitment to Great Homer Street where over 70 new jobs will be created.
We're seeing real progress being made on site with construction work having
begun on the new Sainsbury's supermarket earlier this month. Home Bargains
commitment to Great Homer Street will further strengthen the attractiveness of
the new District Centre. We are currently in detailed discussions with other
potential occupiers and we are looking forward to making further announcements
in the near future."
Joe Morris, Operations Director at Home Bargains, said:- "This is a
historic location for Home Bargains. The Great Homer Street area is where our
families retail roots began. We are thrilled to be opening here and welcoming
new customers through the door to offer our customers top branded goods at
exceptionally low prices."
Liverpool based Hitchcock Wright and Colliers are joint agents on the scheme and
are currently marketing the remaining new retail space which is still available.
