Billericay Retail Vacancy Rate Decreasing

21st April 2021 | Mark Mannering

Like many high streets across the country, Billericay High Street has suffered from a notable rise in the number of vacant shops. The plight of the High Street has been affected by the decline in retail sector, largely due to the impact of online shopping and more recently the Covid pandemic. Businesses have struggled to maintain property costs leading to the closure of many stores.

The good news however, despite the doom and gloom and 'death of the High Street' perception surrounding many towns, things are picking up in Billericay with the vacancy rate now firmly on the decrease.

Mass & Co have recently secured a number of new lettings - Unit 3 Clapham Court at 140 High Street has just been let to a new phone and gadget retailer.

The former Argos store at 32-36 High Street is firmly under offer as is the former Tui travel agency at 82.

Other deals in the town include the former Lloyds Pharmacy at 111 High Street, which is to be taken by a new café operator and the former Boots Chemist at 132 is again under offer.

The remaining vacant shops are all attracting encouraging new interest as lockdown eases. Demand for all types of property in the town is now on the increase.
