Companies seeking sites for shop units in the north of England are being urged by Onward Holdings Ltd to follow in the footsteps of a leading UK supplier of flooring and snap up retail opportunities that are available in the gateway to the Humber, Scunthorpe.
Floors 4 You is an expanding retailer and chose Onward Holdings’ Glebe Industrial Park to launch one of its latest stores because of the site’s past history as a good place for traders to do business, its proximity to the town centre, a diverse selection of other retailers already attracting significant footfall close by and the excellent car parking available for customers.
City Plumbing, Johnston’s Decorating Centre, Bathstore, supermarket Farm Foods and Just Tyres are based on Onward’s Glebe Road site, an ideal location for businesses seeking ready-made retail units, or just a stone’s throw away on Warren Road.

Glebe Road also has an easy connection to Humber Airport, which is just two motorway stops away, as well as being strategically located between Doncaster’s iPort and the new Green Port Hull.
Floors 4 You opened its doors in Scunthorpe in September 2017 and the new store has thrived at the location, according to shop manager Daniel Bright. He said: “Convenient parking and a great location for easy access by car is helping to draw a lot of traffic to our new store. The site has more than met our expectations.”
Onward is experiencing significant interest in units that are available at its Glebe Road site, which the company says can also be turned into excellent design and build opportunities to help retailers looking for increased capacity.
