ESTAma announces the sale of a Combi supermarket in the Münsterland city of Cloppenburg (Germany) to Synvest German Real Estate Fund.

The asset comprises a lettable area of 2,697 m2 and is fully let on a long-term lease to the Bünting Group headquartered in Leer (Ostfriesland) which operate a supermarket in this property.
