Mark Bradley of FHP Property Consultants who acts for the retailer said: “Six shops have been acquired in the south west in towns including Didcot, Plymouth, Fareham, Warminster and Royal Wootton Bassett.
“In addition, two shops were acquired from the administrator representing ICandy, the chain established by the former chairman of Clinton Cards. The two stores are in Witham and Epping.
“A further two stores were acquired from a local independent trading in Gloucester and Bristol and most recently a single shop business acquired in Buckley, North Wales.”
