Barker Storey Matthews Peterborough office has let a showroom at Aston Business Park on Shrewsbury Avenue in the city to local furniture retailer,  Mays Furnishings.

Unit 1 gives 3,421 sq ft (318 sq m) of retail sales space across two levels and is in a prominent position facing Shrewsbury Avenue, with customer parking at the front.

The property was let on a five year lease to Mays Furnishings who had been looking for a second outlet in Peterborough in addition to its Rivergate Centre store.

Mays Furnishings is a family run business.  Current owner, Lloyd May - having taken over the reins from his father - oversaw the relocation of the previous showroom from Ortongate Shopping Centre to the Rivergate Centre three years ago and he has now expanded the business into a much-needed second Peterborough site.

Julian Welch, Director, Barker Storey Matthews, commented, "It is gratifying to have assisted a local business extend its Peterborough presence.  The growth and expansion of Mays Furnishings proves that local businesses can compete head-to-head with national chains by providing great value and excellent customer service. 

"Mays Furnishings is a welcome addition to Aston Business Park.  The unit suits its requirement for a large open plan sales area across two levels.  It is well placed to carry on trading successfully from this additional location in the city."
