PATRIZIA-managed Birchwood Park, the North West’s largest out-of-town business destination, has announced its biggest letting in the Park’s history, welcoming e-commerce fashion retailer Arne Clo Ltd as its newest occupier. The 10-year deal has been completed on 720 Daten Avenue, a 59,055 sq.ft warehouse unit, which also sees phase two of the Park’s multi-million-pound Cavendish Warehouse development fully let.
Founded by brothers Reece and Ryan Broadhurst in 2018, Arne Clo Ltd started out with the aim of creating an honest brand which delivers the highest quality clothing with a clearly envisioned aesthetic focused on structure and minimalism. Since its launch, the Arne brand has grown from strength to strength, quickly outgrowing first its small retail unit, and then its first warehouse space in Wigan.
Over the past 12 months, during the pandemic, the e-commerce fashion sector has grown exponentially. With the trend for online purchases set to continue, Arne Clo’s team is fully focused on expansion and product development from its new base on the Park.
Reece Broadhurst, Founder & CEO at Arne Clo Ltd, commented: “We are a North West company, and incredibly proud to be so. When we were looking to relocate from our Wigan base, although we were looking for a significantly large space, we also required easy access to motorway links and it was important that the new site had all the amenities required for our existing staff members. Birchwood Park ticked all the boxes for us.
“As the full team starts to be more office based with lockdown restrictions easing, we are looking forward to trying out the on-site gym, spacious green areas and various restaurant/meeting room options – all of which are an added bonus!”
Martin O’Rourke, Commercial Director at Birchwood Park, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Arne Clo Ltd to the Park, increasing our client base within the online retail sector. The North West is known for its entrepreneurial spirt, especially within the fashion sector, and the Arne team is a great example of that – with such inspirational growth since its launch just three years ago.
“It’s also incredible news that with welcoming Arne Clo Ltd to the Park, the second phase of our Cavendish Warehouse development is now fully let.”
