The Swindon businesses currently for sale include shops, pubs, offices and car garages – to name but a few.
The coronavirus pandemic has changed everyone’s lives but as business owners struggle to make ends meet amid the pandemic – more and more properties have become available.
Even before covid-19 took hold, the highstreets were seeing a decline and there were a record number of empty units.
In 2019 there was a net closure of 9,169 retail premises across the UK, according to the latest statistics.
With more and more of us working from home and the need for an expensive office depleting, lots of commercial office space has also come on the market.
On a more positive note, now could be the ideal time to make that dream business a reality.
