Laura added “We chose the location for the salon as it in Burton town centre and the position is highly visible. It is has plenty of car parking to the rear (free after 3pm), close to bus stops and Burton train station.”

“The staff at Rushton & Hickman have been great!! They could not do enough for myself & Lauren, (especially Simon), every email / contact with them has been followed up that day and they have constantly kept us in the loop , providing some great advice and going the extra mile by contacting the landlord after hitting a brick wall with our solicitor. I would highly recommend them, extremely professional and get the job done.”

Rushton Hickman Commercial Agent – Simon Walker said “I met Laura and Lauren at another property that just wasn’t right for them. Once I understood their brief, I immediately contacted them as soon as I knew that Unit 5 Britannia House was coming to the market, as I could see the potential for them. We agreed lease terms quickly after viewing the property. This is a great result for all parties involved and shows that new businesses have the confidence that Burton town centre is the right place to be.”

Rushton Hickman Director  – Graham Bancroft added “the letting of Unit 5 to Laura and Lauren continues our recent success in the town centre and once again showing that the retail market is anything but dead.  The use will fit the property well and bring variety to the area and we wish them all the best in their new venture.”
