Owner Universal Consumer Products (UCP) is relocating its Supermarket Surplus store from Market Drayton to the out-of-town Brixton Way site.

It has taken just shy of 15,000sq ft of retail space and will sell a range of high street furniture brands but with savings of up to 80 per cent off retail prices. The store will open in July.

Greg Robson, director at UCP, said: “We are absolutely delighted to announce the news about our new store opening at Arrow Point. We have hundreds of messages every week from our customers asking us when they would be able to shop with us again and finally, we can tell them. We have an incredibly loyal, UK-wide customer base who travel far and wide for a deal, so we are confident they will follow us to Shrewsbury.”

Liz Lowe, head of estates at Morris Property which owns the retail park, added: “Arrow Point has become a destination location, attracting operators such as Outlet X who have such a following and reputation for the quality of its furniture, its discounts, and its service. With its high footfall and collection of well-known discount retailers, we knew Arrow Point would have a strong appeal.”

The letting of the three units was arranged by Birmingham agents, Harris Lamb, which has already brought Poundstretcher and British Heart Foundation to the scheme.

David Walton, head of retail at Harris Lamb, said: “We have been retained by the landlords, Morris Property, for some years now and have had a number of successes marketing Arrow Point. The park has a strong reputation for national and strong regional traders and benefits from an established retail presence with neighbours including Tile Choice and Charlies Stores Ltd. We are thrilled to have let this space to Outlet X, which will complement the businesses already established at the park.”
