Fifty-five Oddbins stores up for sale

18 April, 2011

Fifty-five Oddbins branches are being sold by Christie & Co on behalf of the off-licence chain’s administrators, Deloitte.

The list of stores, which is published on Christies’ website, includes some of the 39 branches included in the round of closures announced in March, but also some other stores.

Christies is inviting offers in excess of £10,000 for each of the leaseholds, in locations spread across the UK.

Offers must be in before 5pm on May 2.

Steve Rodell, head of retail at Christies, said: “We will be conducting a short, focused campaign aimed at individuals and operators with an interest in this sector. These off-licences offer both independent and multiple operators an excellent opportunity to acquire stores of varying size in prominent locations across the country.”
