New occupier secured at Filton’s Shield Retail Centre

Carter Jonas’s south west commercial team has secured a new tenant at Shield Retail Centre in Filton, Bristol, with Easy Bathrooms agreeing a 10-year lease on 3,000 sq ft of retail space. Easy Bathrooms has more than 50 showrooms nationwide, including one at Wilverley Trading Estate, in Brislington, Bristol.

Shield Retail Centre is a well-established, easily accessible shopping destination comprising part of Eagle One’s retail and leisure portfolio. The 60,000 sq ft centre is home to a mix of convenience and destination retailers including Home Bargains, Snow + Rock and Farm Foods, and leisure operators Brewers Fayre, Premier Inn and KFC.

Carter Jonas was instructed alongside MacArthur Wilson in November last year to secure a new tenant for Unit 9, previously occupied by Bathstore.

Stuart Williams, Partner, Carter Jonas said: “We are extremely pleased to have secured Easy Bathrooms to Shield Retail Centre. The site is known for its established mix of occupiers, its quality environment and convenient location, being close to some of Bristol’s largest employers Airbus and Abbey Wood MOD. That Easy Bathrooms chose it as the site for a second showroom in the city reflects the team’s confidence in their product and overall approach, as well as in the location and strength of the market, even during the current uncertainty in which we operate.”

Robin Langford, Retail Asset Manager at Eagle One commented: “This is only the second unit we have had available to let since the scheme was built 22 years ago, so it was of no surprise to obtain several offers – but Easy Bathrooms, with 50 outlets across the UK already were keen to secure, with a deal agreed and completed in the month of April which was particularly pleasing.”

Eagle One was advised by Carter Jonas and MacArthur Wilson. Easy Bathroom was represented by London Clancy.
