Property company FI Real Estate Management has been appointed to ensure the security of empty Toys R Us stores across the country – including the Ipswich store at Copdock Mill.
The company will be responsible for ensuring the security of the large building which closed last month after Toys R Us went into administration in February.
Finding a new tenant for the prominent site at the entrance to the town has not yet started but commercial estate agents Cushman and Wakefield have been appointed alongside Morgan Williams to market the 31 former Toys R Us stores across the country.
There have been concerns about the future of the Ipswich site because it is such a prominent landmark for traffic approaching the town on along the A12 from the south. It is unclear whether it is likely to find a new single tenant – or be split into smaller units as has happened in some retail parks.
