Amalgamated Berkshire Properties, advised by Curchod & Co and Orme Retail, has let 3 Town Hall Buildings in Farnham, Surrey to Blue Bear Bookshop Limited.
The 777 sq ft shop property has been taken on a ten-year lease at an annual rent of £45,000.
Matthew Seary of Curchod & Co said: “The owners of Blue Bear Books are taking a fresh perspective on what a bookshop can offer and will be looking to create a shopping ‘experience’. As well as selling books and gifts, the shop will feature a café and a board games room. It will also provide a dog-friendly environment and will feature armchairs and tables for customers.
“With the changes we are experiencing in the retail market, we are likely to see more shop owners taking a fresh approach to attracting shoppers in this manner,” he added.
