I don't believe it's owned by Mostyn Estates. Or, if it is, they've just bought it. The Long Leasehold was up for sale last year at 550,000.

Ian48, you're right, it would benefit immensely by the decorative elements being reinstated.

Mostyn Estates acquired the premises around a month ago I believe.

It's interesting that Mostyn Estates seem now to have a policy of buying back the Long Leaseholds (they already own the Freehold). They bought No.1 Mostyn Street last year and completely refurbished it before letting it to the WG&Co Gift Shop.

Yes, it is interesting. Perhaps they might restore the front then...(though they would need planning permission I guess and I haven't seen any indication of that).

Ah, I didn't realise that they had bought no. 1 Mostyn St. That's another one to add to the list of nicely done-up properties.

I suppose it's probably a good thing that they have the leasehold, as they are local and aren't some investement fund or absentee landlord who couldn't give a monkeys.

Workmen are this morning installing the new glazed canopy on the Sainsburys store. Good to see it being done, as Sainsburys were initially reluctant to pay for it.

I notice the canopy is being installed by a local company, AA Conservatories.  $good$

Well done, Neil.

The former Diskos shop was having scaffolding erected today, maybe the facade is being restored to its former glory, after all?

I guess Sainsburys can choose to expand upstairs if their new store proves popular.

Seems a waste of space at the moment, two large upstairs floors being empty.
