Well located in St James Street, where the business has been successfully trading for many years. The business is well known and very much a destination shop with the benefit of free 30 minute on-street parking outside. It is close to Newport Bus Interchange and the South Street Retail park alongside it, producing high footfall to this area. Newport is the Island's county town and undoubted commercial and retail centre, drawing on its immediate population of 25,000 and the Island's entire population of 130,000, which is heavily swelled by tourists especially during the ever extending holiday season. Investment in the town continues with a new B&M Store opening recently in the former BHS premises in Newport High Street.
