Home Interiors & Gift Shop

Whitley Bay £29,000 Leasehold (fees apply) REF: NE1930


The premises are located on Park View which is a thriving independent shopping area just to the west of the main town centre.  This is now a sought-after retail and leisure district with a pleasant mix of independent traders that include coffee shops, jewellers, micro pubs and artisan food outlets such as bakers and butchers.

Whitley Bay has enjoyed some significant investment over the last 5 years and this has included the building of a Premier Inn on the seafront and the rerouting of roads which has subsequently improved traffic flow.


This is a very long-established furniture, cards, gifts and accessories retailer which has been trading from this site for almost 15 years. There are extremely high levels of both footfall and passing traffic along Park View and access is easy with free on street parking directly outside the shops.

With such an established trading history, this business   has built up a strong local reputation and enjoys a loyal customer base with plenty of repeat custom. The business stocks high quality products from national suppliers, some of which the business has exclusive local rights over, and there is also a bespoke website.

Items sold include bedroom, dining room and lounge furniture plus smaller complementary items including lamps and soft furnishings.  There is also a range of smaller items available that include cards, gifts and wall art.

This is a rare to the market opportunity and would suit a couple or partnership to drive forward.  Viewing is recommended to appreciate the scope available.
