Two stores snapped up in Stanway

NATIONAL chains have taken over two new stores in Stanway, it has been revealed.
Mattressman and Barnardos have taken over two units at the new Stanway Retail Park, on Peartree Road.
They have taken up ten year leases and created jobs for the area. The two companies join Poundstretcher, which moved into the new site in June.
Rob Windus, associate partner at Fenn Wright, which marketed the site, said Mattressman had moved from Turner Rise Retail Park.
He said: “Colchester is experiencing a period of significant growth at present, and will have 6,000 new homes over the next 10 years.
“Stanway is a long established shopping destination and new developments such as this one can only add to the attraction of the area as a whole.”
The two new stores are expected to open within the coming weeks to begin trading.
Only two units remain at the site, which was finished this year by the East of England Co-op. The chain also has a supermarket on the site.
