UpMargate for start-up retailers now fully let
UpMargate, the retail concept aimed at attracting fledgling retailers, is fully let for the first time following the signing of vintage emporium Pie in the Sky.
LCP, the commercial property and investment company which manages the scheme, now has 12 retailers operating there.
UpMargate was the first of LCP’s Microshops and aims to provide opportunities for start-up retailers who want to test out the opening of a physical store. In addition to Margate, LCP operates Microshops in Aldershot, Thornaby-on-Tees, Govan Cross, Airdrie, Penicuik and Ipswich.
Iain Minto, asset manager for LCP, which manages the site on behalf of landlord Evolve Estates, said: “Since we opened UpMargate in November 2019 we’ve been pleased to attract a great range of independent retailers and visitors who really love the whole idea of the creative maker-space. It’s a busy centre with high footfall, so ideal for local, independent traders who want to try out their business.”
