8& is a large shop unit, that is available whole or as a shop share, for 2,3, or even 4 people, dependant on how much space you feel you need. It has been set up specifically as a space for pop up opportunities in a town hungry for interesting retail and service ideas.
Harpenden is a town just outside the M25, that is regularly listed in the top ten richest, and most desirable towns to live, in the UK. It has direct access to London and the city, via thameslink, in 30 minutes. Making it a perfect commuter town for city workers.
A majority of the residents have come to harpenden purely for the fantastic schools and lovely town and countryside having previously been based in London, so are well aware of the bright and varied shopping available there.
The shop is a large space, brightly decorated and lit, with a large shop window. It is in the middle of the town, adjacent to the high street, alongside other independent, interesting shops. Directly opposite is one of the busiest waitrose supermarkets in the country, ensuring a large amount of footfall, in a town interested in new business start ups.
The unit is approximately 7m x 3.5m, with a smaller square room at the rear for stock storage, or a changing room.
There is a town of 30,000 people, most of whom have been or are still regularly in London. This is a great opportunity to bring your idea to them, wether it be a retail or service based business, the environment is a rich one, for you to create a vibrant, exciting experience for a week, or more. We would promote you through our network of local contacts.
