Worcestershire commercial property consultancy GJS Dillon has let a prominent Worcester city centre retail unit to a national outdoor clothing and footwear retailer for a new outlet in the city.

In a deal brokered by GJS Dillon commercial negotiator Mike Pritchard, on behalf of a private landlord, Trespass has taken a new lease on 45 The Shambles in Worcester.

The 4,227 sq ft three storey retail unit includes a ground floor sales area of 1,988 sq ft, at a quoting rent of £50,000 per annum. Trespass was represented by Martin Herbert of Space Retail Property Consultants.

A well known brand for outdoor clothing, footwear and equipment, Trespass has more than 150 UK stores and after a gap of some years has now returned to Worcester.

Mark Davies, GJS Dillon’s director of building surveying services advised the building’s landlord on a schedule of dilapidations for the out-going tenant and then worked with Trespass on a comprehensive Schedule of Works to update the fire integrity of the site.

Commenting on the letting, Davies said: “We are delighted to help bring another national retailer to Worcester, particularly in what are regarded as difficult times for high street retailing.

“Having a full range of in-house services on offer, including building surveying, undoubtedly helped us to achieve the letting.  I am very impressed with Trespass and the fit out for the new store.”
