About Locate Retail

Our core business provides acquisition and disposal services to a broad range of retailers, supermarkets, leisure & fitness operators and restaurants. We also act on behalf of funds, property companies and developers with their development of high street retail and leisure properties.

We are responding to a demand for a professional and responsive service from clients who prefer to work with a niche practice. We spend time understanding our clients’ businesses and are able to provide an intelligent and tailored service. Locate Retail is an extension of our clients' property teams and we are proud of our 'trusted advisor' status.
