Health & Wellness retailer Holland & Barrett is expanding further in Europe. The goal is to open 25 stores in the Netherlands and five to ten stores in Belgium each year.
The Holland & Barrett chain originates from the United Kingdom and specializes in the sale of products in the field of inner and outer care such as homeopathic medicines, vitamins and nutritional supplements. The company currently has 1,200 stores around the world, including 190 stores in the Netherlands and 20 in Belgium.
Holland & Barrett has given real estate adviser Colliers International the mandate to supervise these expansion plans. The company will do this together with Bas Retail. In addition, Colliers will manage the property portfolio in Belgium.
"A healthy lifestyle is increasingly important for consumers and society," says Etienne van Unen, Director Retail and Co-Head EMEA Retail. "Holland & Barrett is a leading retailer in this segment and we are proud to be advising them on their expansion plans."
Paul Souber, Co-Head EMEA Retail, adds: "This mandate shows how important it is for retailers to work with a real estate advisor who combines local expertise with cross-border knowledge to enable them to successfully implement their strategy."
