St. Helen is a large town in Merseyside. It is the administrative centre of the Metropolitan Borough of St. Helens which had a population of 176,843 at the 2001 Census.
Since the millennium St. Helens has become a focus for a whole borough scheme of urban regeneration which has seen major investment and the development of business links.
St. Helens is well served by motorway links with the east- west corridors of the M58 and M62 to the north and south of the town respectively. The town is also served by the parallel running north-south routes of the M57 and M6 to the east and west.
The business occupies a prominent, standalone position in a densely populated area that comprises residential and commercial properties and thus benefits from high levels of footfall and passing trade. The business is nicely presented and maintained with clear visible signage. There is free on street parking in the roads and streets surrounding the premises along with a bus stop immediately outside.
Discount Motor Parts Limited occupies generous, detached premises which is arranged over two floors.
The ground floor comprises the main retail shop, two store rooms and an office.
The first floor comprises 5 separate rooms which are currently used for storage but offer subletting potential.
There is also an attached garage which also offers subletting potential perhaps to a valeting or detailing business.
We are advised that the business is being sold on a Leasehold basis, with 2 years remaining on the 6 year lease. The rent is £525 per month.
