Handforth Dean Retail Park

Handforth Dean Retail Park, situated in the heart of Cheshire’s stockbroker belt and located just off the A34 bypass, close to the A555 between Wilmslow, Heald Green and Styal, the 40 acre park includes retailers such as M&S, Tesco Extra and Boots and Next.

Pets at Home takes the lead in the business of pet care. This new flagship store forms part of the retail group’s continued expansion strategy. Pets at Home have over 451 stores currently operating UK wide.

Frank Kofler, Managing Director, Castlehouse Construction commented: “We are delighted to start work on the new Pets at Home store for CPG.  Whilst this is our first pet care store new build, we have a strong track record in the retail sector.  Delivering stores for the likes of Lidl, Aldi, Iceland, Home Bargains and more.  The store will be a huge asset for pet owners visiting the Retail Park.  Very much a popular shopping destination for thousands of people across the region.”

Martin Ridgway, Group Managing Director of CPG, “The Handforth Dean retail area is one of the most popular in the region due to the strength of the catchment population and great accessibility. The new flagship Pets at Home store will build on the success of the Next at Home store completed a few years ago. Pleased to be working with Castlehouse Construction and look forward to completion in Spring 2021.”

Wayne Kemp, Pets at Home Store Development Director commented “We’re delighted to be working with CPG and Castlehouse Construction on this project and to be opening a store in such a great location with the added benefit of it being just around the corner from our Support Office.  We’re bringing the very best of Pets at Home to this location. We’re confident that pet owners will be impressed with the finished store.”
