Media Release: Shepherd puts established Aberdeen hardware business up for sale

182 George Street

SHEPHERD Chartered Surveyors has been instructed to sell a long-established hardware business in Aberdeen due to the retirement of the owner.

The 1,600 sq ft property is located in close proximity to the city centre on the east side of George Street between its junctions with St. Andrews Street and John Street in a well established retailing location.

James Morrison, surveyor at Shepherd’s Aberdeen office, said: “As this area of George Street is close to the Bon Accord Centre and John Lewis, it enjoys a considerable amount of passing footfall and, as such, this business is sure to prove attractive to ambitious retailers, particularly as it has a long-established customer base.”

The main building fronts onto George Street and comprises a ground floor and basement retail unit situated within a two storey attic and basement mid-terraced property.

In addition to retail space, to the rear of the property is a small staff room/store area with kitchen units and stainless steel sink. A single WC and cloakroom area is found off this area. Three staff car parking spaces are located off Jopps Lane.

Offers in excess of £350,000 are sought for the freehold property, including the trade inventory, and the business, which posted a turnover of £243,556 last year.
