Former Co-operative Supermarket, Bell Street, Shaftesbury, Dorset, SP7 8AR
Sold £656,000

The historic market town of Shaftesbury is situated around 20 miles south-west of Salisbury and around
25 miles east of Yeovil.

The subject property is something of a landmark in the town, being situated close to the High Street and adjacent to the main public car parks in the centre of the town. The building was most recently in use as a supermarket for the Co-operative Group who have, we understand, relocated to a larger
out-of-town site.

The gross internal floor areas extend to 1,472.9 sq.m. (15,854 sq.ft.), the majority of which is on the ground floor and is set out in a traditional supermarket format. The first floor offers a range of offices, staff facilities and a stock warehouse which is accessed via two service lifts from the enclosed rear service yard. The existing buildings are obviously well suited to continued retail use. Alternatively, prospective purchasers may wish to consider full or partial site re-development, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.
