In a deal brokered by Bruton Knowles, Gribbles Butchers has acquired 9 North Street, a prime shop in the heart of Ashburton town centre.
Advised by Ashleigh Phillips from the firm’s Plymouth office in an “exceptionally smooth transaction”, Gribbles Butchers has agreed a new ten-year lease at a confidential rent.
Mr Phillips commented: “This unit is the latest to be acquired by Gribbles who are expanding their retail offer across South Devon. It is situated in the prime area of Ashburton and will provide Gribbles with an excellent trading pitch in this artisan, stannary town. This shop complements our client’s existing units in Plympton, Ivybridge and Torbay.”
Situated on the southern fringe of Dartmoor, Ashburton is rapidly becoming a popular place for food lovers, where it hosts a successful food and drink festival, Cookery School and has a strong selection of popular restaurants.
Mark Gribble, Managing Director of Gribbles, said they are excited to open up a new shop in the area, adding that it “will offer an excellent trading location for us to bring our high quality meat and service to the town.”
Gribbles Butchers won at the Taste of the West Awards 2014 for best butcher and looks to continue the trend in its latest location.
Acting as Landlord was Stratton Creber Exeter.
