Lock-up Relocations Series

The future looks bright for Chrisp Street retailers


Chrisp Street is open and exciting things are happening!


We are pleased to have reached an exciting new milestone in our plans to regenerate Chrisp Street Market. Ground floor works have commenced at Cygnet House, signalling the long-awaited expansion of shopping space in the area. 


Throughout the regeneration process, we have been committed to working with local retailers, to ensure the plans create a space for existing businesses to grow and thrive. As part of this commitment, we have been working with several local businesses to relocate their premises into the new Cygnet House space - providing bigger and better premises for their businesses to expand. 


Retailers preparing to make the move into their new brand new locations include Sly Barbers, Noor Barber, Anon Tailor, Ebony and Ivy's, Ramsora and Zayn The Clipper. Over the coming months, we’ll be running a series of profiles with the people behind the businesses, so you can get an inside look on all they have planned for the future.


This next stage of the redevelopment is part of Telford Homes’ wider commitment to Chrisp Street, supporting its latest evolution whilst also maintaining its unique spirit. Plans for the area include 600 new homes; alongside new communal resident areas and commercial space which will feature new shops, an updated market, entertainment and food and drink amenities. 


The remainder of local retailers wishing to relocate will do so over the next two to three years. During this time, Telford Homes will be working closely with them to understand where they see their businesses heading in the future and how the relocation can help to facilitate exactly that. 


All the stores will remain open as usual during construction and you can keep updated on the website. Alternatively you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Lock-up Relocations Series - June

Sylvester Ebho, Sly Barbershop

 

Sly Barbershop gets a fresh new home, as part of Chrisp Street regeneration

 

As part of the exciting regeneration of Chrisp Street, we have been working with several local businesses to relocate their premises into the new Cygnet House space – located a stone throw away from their original premises. Throughout the next few months, we’ll be speaking with several of these traders - to get an inside look into all they have planned for the future.

 

 

“The regeneration scheme will significantly benefit businesses and residents based here, and I am so pleased to be part of this exciting relocation. When I first established Sly Barbers it was fairly small, and over the last few years it has been a delight to see it grow and expand. Partnering with Telford Homes will really help bring my vision for the business to life. Once we have moved I plan to put in new floors, mirrors, extra seats for customers and have more staff - attracting more people than ever before!”

 

We are currently working closely with all traders looking to relocate. All the stores will remain open as usual during construction and you can keep updated on the website. Alternatively you can follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

First up is Sylvester Ebho of Sly Barbershop about what this move means to him and his growing business.

Sly Barbers has been an important part of the local community for the last six years  with Sylvester himself having lived in the area for over twelve years. He tells us about what it is he likes so much about Chrisp Street: “Chrisp Street brings people from all different cultures together. It is such a tight-knit community, many families that live here now can be traced back across generations. Whilst living here I have made so many lifelong friends, which is why I am so invested in Telford Homes’ commitment to maintaining our unique identity.”
