Peterborough-based furniture retailer AHF has announced the signing of a new store at Fosse Park, Leicester.

As the latest development in the retailer's growth, AHF will take over the unit currently occupied by Next at Home, which is relocating to a large new-format mixed offer store on the retail park's new extension.

CEO Matt Hesketh explains: “We have been negotiating on numerous sites over the last 12 months and Fosse Park has been near the very top of our strategic growth plans, so it’s extremely exciting that we can announce that we will be opening our newest store on such a well-known and renowned retail park.

"The landlords chose to go with AHF over many other retailers due to the strategy we have developed for the future of the brand and business. We are confident our new Fosse Park Store will be a fantastic addition to our store portfolio.

"We are still finalising head of terms on a number of other exciting locations which we hope to complete over the coming weeks.”
