Grant & Bowman site manager David Jones and Nick Prescott of Knight Frank

Grant & Bowman, the discounted toy and games company, has taken a 100,000 sq ft warehouse at Leeds-Bradford airport. The retailer has signed a three-year lease on the unit at Leeds-Bradford Airport Industrial Estate at Yeadon.

David Bowman, managing director of Grant & Bowman, said:  “Our 85,000 sq ft warehouse at Bradford, which we use for storing our toys, is now full and so it made perfect sense to lease another large, well-located and well-appointed unit in Yorkshire. The competitive rental was also a key factor."

Knight Frank advised Grant & Bowman. Landlord Learmonth Property Investment Company Limited, part of Broadland Properties Limited, was advised by property consultancies GVA Bilfinger and Gent Visick.
