FARLEYS are delighted to have been appointed to provide advice to national retailer ‘The Original Factory Shop’.

The Original Factory Shop currently has over 120 stores trading from over 1,000,000 square feet, offering a wide range of branded and own sourced merchandise. Despite the recession, The Original Factory Shop has bucked the trend with increasing sales and profits, coupled with a massive programme of expansion.

Already on target to open 30 new stores, they plan to open another 30 in 2010 and a further 30 in 2011. The demise of Woolworths has created new opportunities for The Original Factory Shop, with a number of stores being located at former Woolworths sites.

Ian Liddle, a partner in the firm’s commercial law department, has recently completed 3 transactions involving the opening of new stores in Maryport, Bideford and Thorne.

Ian commented,

“The Original Factory Shop sells a wide range of merchandise, bringing big city ranges to small towns but at discount prices. Not only do these towns benefit from the products which are now available on their doorstep, but they have also benefited from new employment opportunities, making The Original Factory Shop an integral part of the local community.

Farleys are proud be to associated with The Original Factory Shop and look forward to working with them as they continue to grow their business.”
