The freehold of this high-potential retail unit is available to purchase, situated at the heart of Greenock town centre, providing high-passing trade and captive footfall adjacent to the main shopping thoroughfare and Bus Station, with owners open to a future change of use.
These former bookmakers provide an inviting environment for business use, with good clean decor and a suspended ceiling throughout to optimise energy efficiency as well as several window display opportunities. To the rear is a staff area with seating and tea preparation facilities as well as welfare facilities.
The entrance is from the street level with roller shutters for security at street level for both entrances. The property has both fire and intruder alarms in situ, with an electric supply only.
Our client is willing to allow the sub-division of this property also into two units, in order to support future letting opportunities.
A CENTRAL LOCATION
The property is located on Nicolson Street, located just a one-minute walk from Greenock Bus Station and with the Oak Mall a two-minute walk. Two of Greenock's main retail areas, West Stewart Street and West Blackhall Street are on either side.
Oter enterprises located nearby include retail, convenience stores, cafes, hairdressers, restaurants, takeaways, clothing stores, and gift stores. Tesco, B&M and Aldi are all within a 5-minute walk.
This is a well-connected business hub, with Greenock West train station only a five-minute walk as well as connecting ferry services to Argyll and Bute a ten minutes drive. Greenock Bus Station is a two-minute walk to Glasgow, Gourock and North Ayrshire with on-street parking within the vicinity as well as local authority parking at £1 a day.
This is a fantastic space for a business to position itself with high visibility and footfall.
