The subjects are located in a busy trading pitch on Leith Walk, close to its junction with Iona Street.
The subjects comprise retail premises arranged over the ground and basement floor of a four storey over basement tenement property of stone construction with a pitched slate roof over. The upper floors are in residential use.
Internally, at ground floor level, there is a sales area with a small store off to the rear. There is a hatch to the rear of the sales area which, via an open tread timber stair, provides access to
the basement below. The basement provides storage and there is a WC.
The door and window to the frontage have the benefit of security shuttering.
The subjects currently trade as a key cutting and shoe repair business although could be utilised for an alternative use.
Rispin Shoes has been established for around 32 years, and our client is now seeking to retire from the trade.
The business offers key cutting and shoe repairs in addition to a small range of stock for sale to include bags, shoe accessories and similar.
The business is operated hands on by the owner and currently trades from 9 am – 4 pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Previously the business traded six days, however, the restricted hours are through choice.
Currently income is generated mainly from key cutting which equates to around 80% of income although historically the shoe repair income was higher.
Accounts for the business will be shown to seriously interested parties following a formal viewing of the property. Income is relatively modest as the business is operated to suit the owners requirements.
