News: Chip shop wraps up deal at Onyx Retail Park


A fish and chip chain is the latest to sign up at Onyx Retail Park as construction begins on the second phase of the successful development in Manvers, Rotherham.

The retail park, comprising 17,500 sq ft of retail space, is based at the Manvers Waterfront development, the 285-acre mixed-use regeneration of the former Manvers Colliery by Anglo-Dutch developers, TCN UK.

Phase One is occupied by Greggs the Baker, Domino's Pizza and Subway, as well as Motor World, the UK's largest independent car parts and car accessories retailer.

The Greggs outlet was recently named as the joint winner of the retailer's Shop of the Year award.

In addition, the park is home to two restaurants, Thai Garden Café and Bistro 63, both of which helped to host a recent turf cutting ceremony attended by Councillor John Foden, the Mayor of Rotherham and his wife Kath the Mayoress.

Owners, Onward Holdings Ltd, brought forward Phase Two of the development after the take-up of units in Phase One was much quicker than originally anticipated.

Only open 18 months ago, the development has so far led to the creation of around 100 new jobs.

And already 60% of Phase Two is pre-let or under offer with grocery giant Spar, a well-known charity and a renowned fish and chip chain set to join other names on the site.

At the turf cutting ceremony, Neil Storey, director of Onward Holdings, said: "We would like to thank everyone connected with the site and in helping to make the Onyx Retail Park such a success, particularly the early pioneers, who took the decision to locate here during a commercially challenging time. We were delighted at the turn out for the occasion, which reflects the economic boost the site is providing for the local area."

Andrew Miller, the Chartered Surveyors of Sheffield who is promoting the site, added: "We are delighted businesses are doing so well at the Park and we look forward to more well-known names, such as Spar, locating here in the future, which has enabled us to bring forward Phase Two."
