Located within a parade of shop serving the local community, the shop occupies a prominent position on the North side of Dumbarton Road between Glendore Street and Haylynn Street within the Whiteinch area of Glasgow, approximately 3.5 miles to the West of the city centre.

Dumbarton Road is a busy road route between the city centre and Clydebank. Close to the premises is one of the off-slip roads from the Clyde Tunnel (A739) which provides direct access between the North and South sides of the city.

On-street car parking is also available to the front of the subjects on Dumbarton Road as well as in the neighbouring residential side streets.

Internally the shop has been fitted and equipped to provide a spacious well fitted and equipped grooming salon.

The front section provides a waiting area to the front and the remainder is partitioned to provide the grooming area which is furnished with a bath and adjustable grooming table (electric powered).

Our client has installed a bath to the front of the shop which provides a self service wash and dry service.

The midsection of the shop is shelved for the storage of stock and supplies and there is a cupboard housing a washing machine/dryer.

The back shop is currently utilised for further storage and completing the accommodation is a staff WC. The back shop is spacious and could be utilised for the provision of additional services if required.
