Whilst most people in the country have been enjoying their summer holidays, Cooper Green Pooks have kept their doors fully open in order to cope with an increased demand from those leasing in both the retail and industrial sectors of Shrewsbury.
20 St Marys Street attracted a large amount of interest and has been let to Pretty Box Pink, an established business moving from their previous location on Wyle Cop. Moving down to Wyle Cop, number 68 is now under offer after a very short marketing period with the new occupier keen to catch the Christmas trade. At 31 Castle Street, again now under offer, the occupier is relocating from Welshpool and is making plans for an opening by Halloween!
Some may have noticed the re-painting at 9- 10 Milk Street, where ‘Fifi’ is due to open shortly. The shop will offer an eclectic mix of old and new decorative items for the home with brands such as Bombay Duck, Biggie Best and The Satchville Gift Company. Some of the items will be handmade, while there are plans for furniture painting workshops to be offered. With Cote Brasserie already popular with the locals, The Square will soon be welcoming its latest retail addition, with the former Jaeger unit (9 the Square) currently under offer to a leading British brand fashion retailer. Watch this space…
Peter Richardsons Estates (estate agents), have continued the trend set by Hatchers solicitors and Roger Parry & Partners in moving over the Welsh Bridge. They have relocated to 126 Frankwell whilst the other part of this attractive period building with half-timbered elevations is now under offer (127 Frankwell). Just around the corner at 106 – 107 Frankwell another retail unit is under offer and due to complete soon, this will offer a new type of business for the area. Another suburban unit has now been let over at 122 Longden Coleham, the visible corner of Longden Road and Greyfriars Bridge. The tenant will run a gents barbers looking to service the area.
It’s not just in retail where Cooper Green Pooks have been busy over July and August. The vast lack of supply of industrial and storage units within Shrewsbury has led to a flurry of activity at Greenwood Court in Harlescott. The most recent lettings have been to PG Carpentry, JS Couriers and Organic Energy. Alessio Dyfnallt, Commercial Director, who handled the lettings, said “The lack of industrial space in the town is fast getting to a critical stage, both for large and small units. Whilst there is a delay in new developments getting off the ground, second hand refurbished space has become very popular with the 10 lettings completed in the last 12 months proving this.”
