New Greggs store for Welshpool

Cooper Green Pooks, Commercial Property Consultants of Shrewsbury, are pleased to report the letting of 9-10 Broad Street, Welshpool, SY21 7RZ to Greggs Bakery.

Seventy five years ago, John Gregg started out with one goal, to deliver (by pushbike!) fresh eggs and yeast to the families of Newcastle in the North East. With 1,671 shops, nine regional bakeries and 20,000 employees, Greggs has become one of the most familiar names on the high street and will now add Welshpool to their list of shops.

Formerly trading as Stead & Simpson, 9-10 Broad Street is a double-fronted ground floor shop prominently located on the main shopping area of Welshpool. With a sales area of 113 sq m (1,220 sq ft) it was offered to let on a new lease at an asking rent of £25,000 pa.

Alessio Dyfnallt, Commercial Director at Cooper Green Pooks, who handled the letting, said “We are delighted to have arranged this letting to such a high profile brand. Broad Street provides good customer footfall with other well-known retailers nearby and Greggs will no doubt thrive in this busy market town. With its proximity to the Border Counties, good transport links to Oswestry and Shrewsbury and a busy livestock market the town attracts many visitors and regular shoppers.”
