RETAIL property expert Matt Penrose is confident a former guitar shop in Beverley will soon be back in business as the vacant premises continues to strike the right chord with potential new owners.

Guitar Galleries, an independent retailer who opened in the town in September 2016, recently vacated the premises in Wednesday Market because they needed more space to grow after three hugely-successful years of trading.

Now the quaint 1,000sqft end terraced property which lies in the shadow of Beverley Minster is being marketed by PPH Commercial for £240,000 freehold or £15,000 per year on a tenancy basis.

Boasting attractive Georgian windows and located at the busy Highgate junction, the retail outlet benefits from a high level of footfall because of its close proximity to the Minster.

Matt Penrose, the PPH Commercial divisional director tasked with finding a new tenant, believes the quality and location of the property speaks for itself

He said: “Wednesday Market is a popular area with both shoppers and tourists and benefits from a high density of people because of the obvious attraction of Beverley Minster.

“It’s an ideal property for a variety of retail or leisure uses because of its historic exterior and the fact it exudes character. We’ve already fielded a number of enquiries and I’m very confident we’ll be able to secure a new business for this historic property in the near future.

“In recent years, the Minster end of Beverley has benefited massively from an encouraging upturn in retailing and dining with many popular restaurants and tea rooms now offering a great food experience and al fresco dining.

“The previous success enjoyed here by Guitar Galleries shows what a great location this premise sits in and I’m sure that will positively influence anyone looking at it as an exciting new home for their business.”
