Supermarket Income REIT PLC (LON:SUPR) said it has bought a Morrisons store in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, from Aberdeen Standard Investments for £30mln.

The total amount paid (excluding acquisition costs) represents a combined net initial yield of 5.0%.

Built in the 1980s, the supermarket was refurbished and extended in 2011 to cover 37,000 square feet.

It comes with a new 26-year lease - with a tenant break option at 20 years - and is subject to five yearly, upwards only, retail price-linked rent reviews (capped at 3% cap and with a 1.5% floor).

The store forms a key part of Morrisons' online grocery fulfilment network.

The prominent nine-acre includes two adjoining units with 36,000 square feet of net sales area let to B&Q and B&M with a weighted unexpired lease term of eight years.

In a statement, Ben Green, director of Atrato Capital, the investment adviser to Supermarket Income REIT, said: "This modern store is a great addition to our growing portfolio of omnichannel stores. The property has strong underlying fundamentals with an attractive lease term providing inflation-linked income in excess of 20 years."
