This large retail unit, situated at the north end of Lerwick in a popular shopping area, could be an ideal business development opportunity. The current use of the property is as Jacky’s party shop.

The property is situated opposite Frank Williamson's DIY store and the Toll Clock Shopping Centre. There is an Indian Restaurant next door and Dentist, Complementary Health Clinic and Co-op Supermarket nearby. The premises are within easy walking distance of Bell's Brae School, Clickimin Leisure Centre and the proposed new Anderson High School, due for completion in April 2017. There are also plans for significant further housing development in the Staney Hill area.

The premises are open plan with three main display areas, an office, toilet, tearoom, storage and workshop space. The total floor area extends to approximately 260 square metres. There are large display windows facing onto the North Road. There is parking at the rear of the property for approximately 5 vehicles.

The property could easily (subject to permissions) be adapted to form offices if desired for that purpose by a prospective purchaser.

A prospective purchaser obtained planning permission for a change of use to accommodation and a takeaway but decided not to proceed with that development. Details are available on the Shetland Islands Council website via this link: Planning Permission 35 - 37 North Road
