Norwich premises let to popular Scandi retailer
A contemporary Scandinavian retailer is set to open a new store in Norwich this Spring. Roche has just secured Søstrene Grene as a tenant for premises at 15 -17 London Street.
Established in Denmark in 1973, Søstrene Grene is a home retailer, selling furniture, interior decor, kitchenware, party supplies, stationery and toys. While it has 15 stores across the UK, the closest one to Norfolk is currently in London.
Roche has let the London Street unit, principally arranged over a 5,612 sq ft ground floor, on a 10-year lease. The premises occupy a prominent corner location and have an extensive frontage, adjacent to Jarrold’s Department Store, making them an attractive proposition for retailers.
“We are delighted to secure this letting for Søstrene Grene to move into the popular London Street shopping area. The location is within one of Norwich’s principal retail thoroughfares which link the professional business district, the Cathedral and railway station to the city centre. This will be the retailer’s first store in the region and we are pleased to have found them ideal premises here in Norwich.”
