    Each year between January and September, our property team are on the look out for between 200-300 mall & shop units throughout the UK and Ireland. We are keen to secure representation in as many shopping centres and high streets as possible for the upcoming season. If you are looking for extra rental income, we're ready to discuss a short-term lease or licence.

    Shop Units

    This season we are again looking for about 150 shop units in prime locations, with occupation from about the end of October until early/mid January.

    Depending on the unit, we are generally looking for selling space of around 800 - 1,000ft2 (75-90m2), but can go down to as little as 300ft2 (28m2) or as much as 2,000ft2 (185m2), plus storage.

    We, of course, understand that landlords are generally looking for a long term tenant and will often wait until the last possible moment before commitment, so in certain circumstances we are prepared to sign a license agreement which entitles the landlord to pull out before October 1st. This eases the pressure on the property team who are trying to get 150 leases signed and 150 shop units signed and opened within a short period.

    Mall Units

    We react to offers of space within a few hours and can fully assemble and stock a shop configuration within 48 hours, but the more notice we receive, the better we can complete the job.

    We are looking for as many mall units as possible in shopping centres, with a view to trading from late-September until mid-January. Ideally, we would like to build a unit 3.5 metres in width by 5.5 metres in length, but we can be very flexible in the demise area and we can adapt our layout configurations to the space available.

    Although we can store some calendars within the retail unit, a small storage area is often essential for receiving deliveries, stock handling etc. We are able to be very flexible and can build against walls or under stairways if necessary.

    Please contact our Property Team for more details.
