The new owners of a Southampton retail park have vowed to enhance the shopping experience.

M Core has bought Antelope Retail Park in Thornhill as part of a £35m deal which also saw it purchase a retail park in Darlington, a Matalan store in Newport and a Morrisons in Coventry.

The Thornhill site boasts a range of retailers such as Lidl, Ninja Warrior, The Gym, and Greggs.

A spokesperson for LCP Group, which forms part of M Core, said only one of the units was currently available.

But they added: "The LCP Group is known for its intensive asset management approach, which enables us to use our extensive lists of contacts across the retail sector to attract a wide range of brands and tenants.

"Our goal is always to provide people in the communities where we are based with a diverse range of shops, including local retailers and nationally known names, to enhance their shopping experience.

"It's an approach that has served us well over the years and will continue to do so."
