Demand for shops in St Ives is ‘huge’according to a Surveyor at Barford + Co, the St Neots firm of Chartered Surveyors and Planning Consultants.

Surveyor Felicity Paddick, who has just recently let a prominent retail premises on Crown Street to Honeys Bridal Events, which is relocating to the town from Oakington, says she is receiving daily enquiries from retailers keen to rent space in this popular Cambridgeshire town.

“Demand for retail space in St Ives is extremely high at the moment,”commented Felicity. “On the most recent shop we let, we received six offers in 24 hours, which is testament to the strong appeal St Ives currently has,”she continued.

Just prior to the letting of 11 Crown Street, Barford + Co let 9 White Hart Court to estate agents Harvey Robinson, with strong competition for that particular premises as well.

“St Ives is a charming riverside market town and many of the retail premises have lots of character, which make the area particularly attractive to retailers. The town is always bustling and there are good levels of public car parking, and even premises in secondary locations are in high demand,”said Felicity.

Barford + Co continues to receive regular enquiries from retailers and the firm is now urgently looking for retail space in the town. Felicity said: “We are urging any landlords with retail space in St Ives to contact us as we have a database of retailers actively looking for suitable space. Now is a great time to think about renting out shops in the town as demand is so high, and landlords can contact us for a no obligation consultation about the market and potential for their property.”
