Boost for the high street as Eddisons complete two retail lettings in Huntingdon
The high street is set for a retail boost this autumn as Eddisons complete the letting of two retail units in Huntingdon.
Eddisons acted as the sole agent under instruction on the two units in the heart of the town’s retail core, 24 and 25 High Street.
24 High street has been let to financial advisors, Cambridgeshire Money, who plan to open mid September (2021). The property comprises 1,112 sq ft (103 sq m) of accommodation over two floors and benefits from a large display window to the High Street.
Speaking about the letting, Corey Whelan, Director of Cambridgeshire money, said: “The motivation for taking the new office for us comes off the back of a great start to the business and how 2021 has got off to a flyer and led us to needing more space for more expansion.
“As a company, we were launched at the very start of the pandemic and spent our first months managing to still push ahead and grow that required us to move into an office in July of last year but we’ve found in the last year we’ve still grown even further, expanding the team that we need more space as we plan to continue this trend and continue to grow.
“The office itself seems perfect for this for us with a great space and with the added bonus of a high street, shop front location really helping up grow our brand and exposure as well as making us more accessible to our customer.
25 High Street has been let to pizza restaurant and takeaway firm, Don’t Panic Pizzeria & Grill. The two-storey property of 901 sq ft² (84 sq m) was formerly occupied by an established local café.
Don’t Panic Pizzeria & Grill restaurant owner, Jordan Mason, said: “We are thrilled to be in our new premises, 25 High Street, Huntingdon.”
“Opening the first of many future stores is a huge milestone for us, and being locals, it was important to us that our first store was in Huntingdon.
“We hope to bring high quality food and drink to the town whilst opening up future job opportunities within the community.”
