Cherished shopping mall in Somerset village on the market through Christie & Co

Specialist business property advisor, Christie & Co has been instructed to market The Borough Mall, a shopping centre in the village of Wedmore, Somerset.


The Borough Mall is considered a central aspect of the small Somerset town, being heavily relied on by local residents. The shopping mall consists of 16 well-presented retail units which are occupied by thriving local businesses, including a local produce and fruit shop, a Post Office, and the very popular Pumpkin Café. The property also features several office spaces and six letting apartments across the first and second floors.

The business has been owned and run by Mrs Leavey since 1986, who has now retired. Mrs Leavey comments, “The Borough Shopping Mall has served the Wedmore and surrounding community for over 35 years, and we hope the next owner will help it prosper for another 35 years.”

The sale of The Borough Mall is an excellent investment opportunity for an independent operator looking to expand their portfolio, or for a new owner who wishes to become an intrinsic part of serving the local community and wider area.

Matthew McFarlane, Business Agent at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, “It is a pleasure to be instructed on such an important community asset. The opportunity for a purchaser to become the owner of a shopping mall is a very interesting proposition. I am expecting a wide range of interest for such a unique offering to the market. With 16 commercial units within the freehold, it has a diverse variety of businesses servicing the local community that will be a constant draw for both traders and customers.”
