Property director quits as seasonal retailer launches 2017 acquisitions programme

As pioneering property director Bill Nettelfield stands down after 19 years, specialist retailer Calendar Club is about to embark on its annual hunt to acquire over 270 short-term mall and shop units for Christmas 2017, together with 40 for its Halloween fascia to meet the rapidly growing demand for Halloween-related goods.

Bristol-based Williams Gunter Hardwick will lead the search in the southern half of the UK, with Barker Proudlove of Leeds responsible for acquiring units in the northern half. Around 160 mall units have already been secured to trade later in the year with the newly retained agents tasked with securing the required 110-120 shops across the UK for calendars, which are ideally 800 – 1,000 sq ft and a further 40 stores for Halloween at around 1,200-1,500 sq ft.

The news comes as the company announced that Bill Nettelfield will be stepping down from his role as property director in early September to pursue other opportunities.

“Bill has been fundamental to the growth and development of Calendar Club in the UK,” says fellow director, David Pike, “joining the company at its inception and working closely with the founding shareholders to grow the store estate and the business.

“He was key to the emergence of Calendar Club as the pre-eminent temporary retailer in the UK.”
