New Toy Store For City

Success has been achieved by Carigiet Cowen and their joint agents Green and Partners, with the letting of 4 units in the Crown & Mitre block on English Street to THE ENTERTAINER toy store. The company are featured number 1 in the Zolfo Cooper Growth Retail Report 2014 identifying outstanding retailers. The Entertainer remains a 100% owned family run business with a recent focus to expand their presence in the pre-school toys market whilst continuing to grow its online sales. Margaret Bushnell advises that the whole team (including architects, building surveyors and lawyers) worked very hard to pull together the deal, with incredible co-operation and financial commitment from the landlord, Picton Property Income Limited ("Picton"), a stock exchange listed property company who invest in commercial property throughout the United Kingdom. Laurence Jones, a Senior Asset Manager at Picton, commented: "We are delighted to have secured The Entertainer at our estate which is now fully occupied. This has not been a straightforward transaction, particularly given the requirements for building consents and the practical considerations involved in creating the larger unit, but all parties have worked tirelessly to make it happen. A retailer of this calibre can only be good news for the city and we look forward to them opening later in the year".
