Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this leasehold pre-owned children’s equipment, accessories, clothing and toy shop located in Anglia Square, Norwich.
Marmalade Children’s Shop was established in early 2016 with our client taking ownership in 2017. The shop offers a range of pre-owned children’s equipment, clothing and toys. The shop is very well known and has a strong base of regular customers in place as well as benefitting from a huge amount of passing trade due to this excellent trading position. Our client has ensured the business has an excellent reputation and superb reviews are noted on Google, Facebook and Trip Advisor.
Marmalade Children’s Shop occupies a prominent trading position within a busy shopping centre in Norwich.

Norwich is well linked by the A47 with strong public transport links and parking is available in the surrounding area.
The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to the demands of our client's family commitments, the business is offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.
The building is available on a Full Repair and Insure lease (Fri). This is the most common form of commercial lease. The current lease is a two year lease which began in 2018 at a cost of £650 per month.
