Full description

A rare opportunity to acquire the freehold of one of Whitehaven’s most widely recognisable shops. Having been in the same ownership for over 30 years, La Chic is now available complete with 41 Strand Street which has the potential to be converted into highly sought after executive apartments (subject to planning permission).

With the convenience of being on Whitehaven’s main shopping area with the established Thursday & Saturday markets and only a short stroll from the harbour, these buildings form the corner entrance to the hub of the town.

Set over four floors the ground and first are given over to sales of clothing, particularly school wear, while the second and third are predominately for storage of stock. In total the property offers in excess of 4,400 square feet of space.

This would be a superb project to add some much needed high quality accommodation to this part of Whitehaven town centre.
