Thornes Chartered Surveyors in conjunction with joint agents Goadsby are pleased to report positive market interest in the three vacant prime retail units located in Westover Road, Bournemouth. Thornes, who have enjoyed a long standing relationship with the freeholders were invited to offer units 5, 6 and 7 Westover Road `To let`, on new leases following the vacation by the former tenants High and Mighty, Mappin & Webb and Past Times.
David Quest, from Thornes commented; `In a difficult economic climate we have received a strong interest in the retail units, particularly from local business looking to expand, proving that there is sufficient market confidence in the local economy to support local business development. Following a period of negotiation with several interested parties, we are pleased to announce the completion of the first new letting on 5 Westover Road to Charmed Jewellers who are expanding from smaller retail premises within the area. A new 7 year lease has been agreed at a commencing rental of £35,000 pa. The property is currently undergoing a comprehensive shop fit out prior to the planned opening in July.
Unit 7 Westover Road is currently under offer and Unit 6 Westover Road, the last remaining unit which provides a net sales area of 710 sq ft and ancillary space of 783 sq ft is still available at a rent of £40,000 pa.
Thornes Chartered Surveyors wish Charmed Jewellers all the best in their expansion plans and local business development.
