German kitchen retailer Kutchenhaus is to open in the former Slug & Lettuce unit in Altrincham.
The 8,000 sq ft, four-storey building on Stamford New Road was sold by Cream Investments to Buzz Communications in a deal worth £915,000 back in November 2017, two months after the closure of the bar.
Now, after a long period on the market, the 2,000 sq ft ground-floor space – which has been completely renovated – has been let on a 10-year lease to Kutchenhaus. It will open its doors in April.
The above floors have already been remodelled into six two-bedroom apartments, which are all let.
Joshua Bowyer, Kutchenhaus director, said: “I am extremely excited to be bringing the Kutchenhaus brand to Altrincham.
“It is an area we have been looking at for some time and feel this unit will make a fantastic showroom. We can’t wait to open the doors in April and begin creating wonderful kitchens for the people of Altrincham.”
Established in 2004 at Trafford Retail Park, Kutchenhaus is the UK arm of Nobilia, the world’s largest kitchen manufacturer. It has 31 kitchen outlets around the UK and operates on a franchise basis.
Daniel Lee, director, Regional Property Solutions, responsible for the management of Buzz Communication’s property portfolio, said: “The public realm improvements and new occupiers such as Evuna, Ferrious and Ginkgoon continue to make Stamford New Road a desirable alternative retail pitch for the town centre. This is only set to improve with the impending re-development of The Grafton’s. This commercial letting is the final piece of the jigsaw realising the full potential of this investment opportunity.”
