New Let Signals Aberdeen City Centre Retail Market ‘De-Zire’ability

February 24, 2015

Aberdeen’s West End continues to be a popular choice for retailers. The most recent addition to these being lingerie boutique De-Zire, whose owners have opted to make a 15mile move from their current premises on Inverurie’s High Street to 36A Thistle Street.

The ground floor unit was put on the market for just two weeks prior to the new lease agreement being put in place – signalling the continued demand for well-located retail space in the Granite City.

Graeme Millar at FG Burnett comments, “Where there might be a perception by some that the retail market, particularly in Aberdeen’s city centre, is deteriorating, from our experience we can show that this is not the case.

“With the property having only been listed for two weeks prior to lease agreement, this shows how well located, well-presented retail properties continue to be in popular demand.

“The West End-based property is situated in close proximity to Union Street – the main thoroughfare in Aberdeen – as well as benefiting from a vibrant mix of retailers, cafes, offices and residential properties in what is a very strong retail location.

“The addition of De-Zire to Thistle Street is another important development in the buoyancy of the city’s retail market and we would like to wish the independent boutique every success in its new home.”

Susan Evans, owner of De-Zire says that the lease process with FG Burnett was straightforward, signalling the start of a positive experience in Aberdeen City. She comments, “De-Zire had already established a good reputation in Inverurie, and for the past two and a half years I have had many clients travelling from Aberdeen to experience our services – many of which had asked when I was expanding to the city.

“This move was a natural progression, with Aberdeen being a thriving place with a large potential market for my exclusive offering. The West End in particular is flourishing with the right style of boutique stores and small businesses. There is a community atmosphere here with business owners coming in to introduce themselves and welcoming me to the area, which is a lovely feeling. We are all very supportive of each other.

“Shoppers at this end of town usually tend to be looking for a different offering – something unique. We’re here to provide that, and I hope to welcome many more people to the De-Zire experience now that I have settled in.“

De-Zire has signed an initial three-year lease on the Thistle Street property having taken occupancy in February 2015.
