The largest cabinet manufacturer in Asia has taken the former Magnet Kitchens retail outlet on Stamford New Road in Altrincham town centre.
OPPEIN is the leading home furnishings brand in China, manufacturing high-quality kitchens, wardrobes, customized home furniture, bathroom products and other interior products. It made £13.5bn in revenue in 2019.
It’s taken the 2,484 sq ft unit – recently acquired by the Pervaiz Naviede Family Trust (PNFT) – on a 10-year lease at a rent of £41,500 per annum.
The Stamford House space had been vacant since July 2019, when Magnet Kitchens closed its doors having opened in the unit in 2014.
A relatively new retailer to the UK market, Guangzhou-based OPPEIN supplies all kinds of cabinets for both house owners and residential projects. It designs custom-made solutions and offers customers a whole-house solution.
It will open its Altrincham outlet in November.
Christina Wang, managing director, OPPEIN Manchester Showroom, said: “We are trying our best to help present the excellent customized cabinetry products which are in modern design and free from formaldehyde. OPPEIN also provide one-stop solution from measurement to installation.”
Daniel Lee, director, Regional Property Solutions, who acted for the landlord, Pervaiz Naviede Family Trust, said: “This letting to OPPEIN and the recently opened Your Green & Co within Stamford House were agreed pre lockdown and completed after the retail restrictions lifted and reflect the strength of Altrincham town centre.
“The doom and gloom surrounding the retail market is not universal as I am aware other suburban centres are benefitting from improved demand and take-up indicating a desire to shop local rather than city centre given the current circumstances.”
