Barker Storey Matthews Peterborough office have let a ground floor retail unit of over 6,000 sq ft at 282 Lincoln Road, Millfield, Peterborough to Max 99p Ltd, with the company creating 20 new local jobs.

Having set up their first store in Chelmsford, the company felt Lincoln Road Peterborough an ideal location for their seond store with more to follow. A UK expansion program is now under way.

Richard Jones Director of Barker Storey Matthews Peterborough office commented "it is good to see this large Millfield retail unit occupied after having come close to agreeing a deal on two previous occasions. I am sure Max 99 will do well in this highly populated residential location. The premises were previously occupied by Blokbuster Video and United Carpets Ltd and this recent letting follows a letting, earlier this year, of the adjacent shop unit to William Hill bookmakers. The first floor accommodation above Max 99 Ltd, formerly Brown's Dance studio, is also about to be let".
