News: New tenant measuring up former Rotherham Mothercare unit


Plans are being progressed for a new tenant to take on the former Mothercare unit in Rotherham which has been vacant since 2018.

The 15,000 sq ft unit at Parkgate is currently listed as "under offer" with agents, Montagu Evans and it looks set to be taken on by the UK's largest kitchen retailer.

Wren Kitchens has recently applied to Rotherham Council for planning permission that would enable new signage at the prominent unit on the popular retail destination.

Founded in 2009, Wren Kitchens has 90 showrooms across the UK and is described as the UK's fastest growing bricks and mortar retailer. It utilises cutting edge technology, modern transport fleets, integrated systems and inspirational showrooms.  In the financial year of 2019 it recorded revenue of £700m.


In the UK, Wren designs, manufactures and delivers over 2,000 kitchens every single week. To keep up with expansion plans, it recently had proposals approved for a £120m state-of-the-art kitchen manufacturing facility located behind its existing factory at Barton-upon-Humber.

The Rotherham outlet has been at the nearby Foundry Retail Park at Parkgate.

Rothbiz reported in 2018 that Mothercare was hoping to secure its future by implementing a company voluntary arrangement (CVA) to close underperforming stores and reduce rents across the remaining portfolio.

The Parkgate store had closed even before the national retailer went into administration in 2019.
