WORK on a new retail park in Oldbury boasting a Tim Hortons and B&M Bargains, has been completed.

The former Toys ‘R’ Us site on Wolverhampton Road near the M5 has been transformed into Birchley Island Retail Park, a 65,000 sq ft development which contains a new standalone Tim Hortons drive-thru restaurant and a B&M store.

Canadian coffee chain, Tim Hortons has fitted-out its new drive-thru restaurant.

It had been set to open yesterday (Monday May 9) but this has been delayed with a new opening date not yet confirmed.

A spokesman said: "It's due to open very soon - we'll confirm the date as soon as we know."

B&M is opening its new store, which boasts a 5,000 sq ft garden centre, tomorrow (Wednesday May 11).

An existing McDonald’s drive-thru restaurant is remaining open.

Birmingham-based property company, Hortons’ Estate Ltd said yesterday (Monday May 9) it has completed works at the new retail park.

Steve Tommy, head of asset management at Hortons’ said: “This is a fantastic destination to work, shop and meet, and promises to create new job opportunities for local people.

"The park’s prime location close to the motorway junction is clearly attractive to occupiers and we look forward to letting the final available unit.”

James Slater, head of building surveying and development at Hortons, said: “We have delivered a high quality development at Birchley Island Retail Park that significantly enhances the local retail offer.

"It is good to see construction delivered on time and under budget during a very difficult time for the construction industry.”

Simon Smith, director of retail and leisure specialist, Wright Silverwood, who is marketing the retail park, said: “We are pleased to have been able to deliver a strong line up of retail and leisure users.

"We are in positive discussions with a number of potential tenants for the last remaining unit, which is a large, prominent space suitable for a variety of retail occupiers.”

An area of the car park has been let to the EV Network where 12 new EV charging points are to be installed.

Just two units remain available for occupation. One of these is a new development of 16,000 sq ft that has been earmarked for leisure use and is currently under offer, while the other is a retail unit of 20,733 sq ft.
