Peill & Company, the PAI member for Cumbria & the Lake District, have recently concluded a number of sales and lettings along Dalton Road, Barrow-in-Furness within the last 3 months to a range of occupiers. 189-191 Dalton Road (immediately adjacent to Marks & Spencer) has been let to Trespass, the outdoor retailer and is now open and trading. 138 Dalton Road (the former Phones 4 U unit) has been let to Vape Pod, an e-cigarette retailer who has outlets throughout Scotland and the North of England and is also fitted out for trade. A new tenant is fitting out 124 Dalton Road which is immediately opposite the new Entertainer Toy Shop (which occupies the former Argos unit) and this should be open for trade shortly. In addition, a lease has been renewed to Thorntons, the chocolate retailer at Unit 2-4 Portland Walk. 240 Dalton Road has been sold to an owner/occupier and should be completing shortly and, in addition to this there are a number of other units along Dalton Road which have been placed under offer.
Simon Adams, managing director of Peill & Company commented, “We are pleased to have concluded more than 6 lettings and sales along Dalton Rd in the past few months, which shows some confidence in the retail market, backed by the investment in the nearby nuclear submarine facility of BAE Systems. The deals have been with both national retailers and local operators, and the fact that rents have been re-based mean that independent traders now have the opportunity to trade competitively in strong retail locations”
