OXFAM GOES ONLINE IN SHREWSBURY
Cooper Green Pooks Commercial Property Consultants of Shrewsbury report the recent letting of first and second floor offices at 44 High Street, Shrewsbury, above the Oxfam retail shop.
44 High Street is located in the heart of Shrewsbury amongst a range of national and niche concerns including Bang & Olufsen, Zizzi Restaurant, House of Fraser, White Stuff, Seasalt, HSBC, Costa, Starbucks and, most recently, Cote Brasserie. The offices are arranged on the first and second floors of a three storey building, with entrance being located off High Street. The property provides an area of 81.42 sq m (876 sq ft) and the asking rent was £7,750 pa.
Carla Siswick, Area Manager for Shropshire, said: “E-commerce is an exciting area of growth for Oxfam. We have seen a spike in sales as more and more of our high street shops list products for sale online – growth which looks set to increase even further this year and raise even more vital funds to fight poverty and injustice around the world. We needed suitable premises and when the offices above the High Street shop became available we knew it would be perfect. Already having a relationship with Cooper Green Pooks we knew the property would be in great condition and well maintained so this has allowed us to fit out the offices with existing equipment and ensure we make as much as we can to help even more people. I would like to thank the team at Cooper Green Pooks for their efficiency and personal service offered and it was a very easy transaction”.
Alessio Dyfnallt, Commercial Director at Cooper Green Pooks, who handled the letting, said “We were pleased to secure this letting and to enable Oxfam to fulfil their future plans for their organisation. Shrewsbury High Street and The Square remain very attractive to both local and national concerns who see the potential of Shrewsbury town centre and this is demonstrated by the number of well-known and established brands coming to the town”.
