The unit is located on Park View which is a busy retail street on the north side of the town centre and home to a pleasant mix of national and independent retailers. Whitley Bay is a popular coastal town approximately 10 miles due east of Newcastle and is currently enjoying significant investment and improvements to the infrastructure and seafront. The town is well served by public transport and is popular with day trippers who can visit via the Metro rail link.
This business was established in 2007 but has been reluctantly placed on the market as our client wishes to concentrate on family commitments. The current premises were refurbished at the point the business opened and all the fixtures and fittings were acquired new. The ground floor premises are currently laid out to provide a large open area with tables, chairs and a reception space plus kitchen and toilet facilities. To the upper floor there is a private party room with an additional toilet and a kitchen area. The capacity of the whole premises is 50 persons.
The current operator has developed the offer over the years and there is a range of products and prices to suit a variety of pockets. In addition to the day to day walk in trade there are high levels of private parties and our client also offers commissions for bespoke pieces. The unit is fully fitted and equipped.
We see the business as an opportunity for either a family, couple or a partnership to develop and there is genuine potential for motivated new owners.
