Property investors buy east Cambs Waitrose supermarket for £12.6 million
A property investment group have bought one of east Cambridgeshire’s supermarkets for almost £13 million in a bid to provide “secure, inflation-protected long income”.
The Waitrose store in Brays Lane, Ely was acquired by Supermarket Income REIT plc as part of a portfolio of six stores bought for £74.1 million.
Nothing will change at the Ely store – which was purchased for £12.6m - and it will continue to trade as normal while being leased to Waitrose.
Ben Green, director of Atrato Capital, the investment adviser to Supermarket Income REIT, said: “We are very pleased with this transaction.
“All of the stores have an impressive trading record and are complementary to our existing portfolio, providing further tenant and geographic diversification”.
