Commercial retail unit
This double fronted retail unit enjoys prominent position in the centre of the Perthshire town of Blairgowrie. The property has a total floor area of approx 67 sq. metres (720 sq. feet) and comprises sales area, kitchen, staff WC and rear store. The property previously traded as a farm shop, offering a variety of local produce, but would be equally suitable for a number of different retail uses. Blairgowrie offers a good mix of national and independent retailers and the keenly positioned guide price offers an exciting opportunity to create a new start up retail business. The current rateable value of £2,800 would potentially qualify for rates relief under the small business bonus scheme. There is currently a vending machine installed within one of the main window spaces and attention should be paid to special conditions within the legal pack for clarification in this regard.
