OTHER BUSY SHOPS
Including a busy off-licence and general store, pizza shop, carpet retailer, Chinese take-away, Barbers, and furniture shop etc. all of which attract plenty of footfall in their own right.
A POPULAR PELICAN CROSSING
With a pelican crossing at your front door, everyone who crosses the road at this busy spot will see your shop (and what you have to sell), PLUS each day thousands of cars that stop outside when the lights are on red, will notice you too. (What form of advertising generates this kind of exposure.... thousands of hits per day or views etc....? The cost of getting so much exposure would be phenomenal! all this comes included in the rent).
TWO BUS STOPS
With two bus stops at the front, one on each side of the road, the amount of exposure you get keeps on getting better!
THOUSANDS OF RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES
If you know this area, you will know there are two large housing estates very close by (and some even larger ones further down the road) as well as hundreds of additional properties in the surrounding streets. The opportunity this presents is huge.... more customers just waiting for you to open up shop!

There are two primary schools within easy reach, one of the largest secondary schools in Darwen, just down the road. All of which generate lots of healthy footfall and opportunity for repeat business.
