Childrens stationery retailer Smiggle UK have opened their doors today for the first time in Chichester.

We were asked by Strutt & Parker to use our local knowledge and expertise to assist with the sub-letting of first floor office space at their 31, North Street, Chichester office. Having acted for their head office before, they knew we had the necessary commercial property expertise. We were pleased to help find a way to make use of the surplus accommodation. This foll wed the re-organisation of their 'back of house' functions to regional hubs. After exploring the possibility of converting the offices to bed and breakfast accommodation for the ground floor Purchases restaurant, we found office sub-tenant Donna Ockenden who has signed up for a new lease until 2023. In the meantime Strutt & Parker agreed a sale of their business to Global company BNP Paribas. This produced further complications but a satisfactory outcome was achieved for all.
