Barker Storey Matthews - now part of Eddisons - is the sole agent under instruction to let two retail units in Bury St Edmunds town centre.

Number 7 Risbygate Street is a ground floor unit of 34.04 sq m (366 sq ft) and has just gone under offer within a few weeks of becoming vacant to let. It is available due to the relocation of the previous occupier who ipartioned the internalretail space to make a main reception area and two treatment rooms.  There is a communal yard to the rear and it is close to the Arc shopping centre and The Apex leisure complex and the town centre’s main car parks. 

The other current retail instruction is ten minutes’ walk from the town centre at 69 Out Northgate where a 44.1 sq m (475 sq ft) ground floor shop space, with a small area for storage, is available by way of sub lease or reassignment of the lease which runs until November 2022.  A former sandwich shop with a glazed shop front, Barker Storey Matthews believes the premises may suit an occupier looking for premises for a salon or beauty treatment use. 

Steven Mudd of Barker Storey Matthews’ office in the town, added, “As the configuration of high streets change, it’s independent traders with a retail offering – such as that of a salon or complementary therapies and treatments – that cannot be replicated online, are prevailing.   

“It is operators in these sectors to whom such retail instructions tend to appeal.”
