Shop set for new lease of life

The former Ingrams of Salisbury commercial premises in the city centre has been sold just weeks after the family-run store closed for good.

Property consultancy Myddelton & Major successfully negotiated the sale of 44 Catherine Street, Salisbury to a local property investment company.

Quoting freehold price for the city centre retail unit with ground floor net sales area of 1 504 sq ft (139.72 sq m), plus ancillary storage, was £365,000 with vacant possession.

Myddelton & Major Partner Simon Lee said: “This sale follows the closure of the well-known Ingrams luggage, bags and leather goods store at the end of July after 94 years of retail service in the city.

“The retirement of the owners prompted the sale of this property and fortunately the premises will now be refurbished by the new owner before it is returned to the market for re-letting.”

The property occupies a busy central trading position fronting Catherine Street opposite the pedestrian link to the public car park in Brown Street and has a return window display frontage to the pedestrian walkway to the the Old George Mall.

The multi-storey shoppers car park immediately adjoins to the rear and nearby occupiers include Southons Furniture, Salisbury Antiques Market, Traveller’s World, Cash Converters and Barnado’s.

The property has an open plan sales area, two separate internal stairways, first floor ancillary storage/staff facilities, together with additional second floor attic storage.

Myddelton & Major was named the most active agency in Wiltshire in 2018 for the seventh year running by Estates Gazette, the weekly and online magazine of the UK commercial property industry.
