The deal for the North Harbour site was announced in November 2014 but was conditional upon the buyer obtaining the requisite planning approvals.

Andrew Jacobs, chief executive, said: ‘The completion of this sale is another step in the continued expansion of our operating business while keeping a tight lid on leverage.

‘The proceeds will be recycled into our exciting programme of new purpose built landmark stores.
