In February this year, Roe Properties acquired the former NatWest Bank & Bank House, which previously occupied Dyslexia Action
Roe properties plan to convert the former NatWest Bank & Bank House into 2 commercial units offering retail & office space, whilst also converting the rear and upper floors into residential apartments subject to planning permission of course.
MIRELLA plans to take on the larger unit that formerly housed the NatWest Bank, offering a showroom 3 times the size of its existing premises at 5 Radford Street.
Owner of MIRELLA, Nicola Lewis has been on the lookout for larger premises for the past 12 months after trading successfully in the town for over 4 years.
“After moving into Radford Street back in 2015, it soon became apparent that our business had become a destination shopping outlet for local residents as well as capturing visitors from further afield”
MIRELLA started selling footwear in early 2016, due to the absence of a shoe shop in town, and last year also increased their footwear offering to include Lotus. They have also introduced Underwear & Nightwear since Chantilly closed its doors in the town last year.
“It is important that we now move forward into bigger, better premises so we can offer more choice, variety & new ranges as well as focussing on the customer experience “
MIRELLA intends to expand into menswear when it hopefully moves into the NatWest building in autumn this year, offering something new & different to what the town has seen before. It also plans to offer more affordable brands, a much larger Italian free size clothing range, it’s own shoe shop within the new premises, along with a more substantial range of underwear & accessories.
Spacious private changing areas, with plush seating & complimentary refreshments are also part of the new enhanced look and feel that MIRELLA is hoping to achieve.
