Whittle Jones; managing agents acting on behalf of Northern Trust is pleased to confirm that they completed the letting of Unit 9, a 990 sq ft unit to Suitbae at their popular Blackpool & Fylde Industrial Estate.
Suitbae was started solely as an online business selling Men’s formalwear on eBay and Amazon in February 2020. Despite forming during a stay-at-home global pandemic, Suitbae has enjoyed a surprising level of success. Through maintaining low overheads and a one-man workforce, the business has been able to offer high-quality menswear at prices, well below that of their online competitors.
Lawrence Cassidy, owner of Suitbae commented “Suitbae has steadily built up a huge selection of suits and jackets, filling our new unit at Blackpool & Fylde Industrial Estate, next door to Red Carpet Dresses, a sister company with a similar business model offering quality womenswear at very reasonable prices.
Our physical store offers a different way to shop, designed to make selecting the perfect suit as easy as possible. After walking through the photography studio that is used for our online sales, and into the main sales area, you will be faced with a 30ft banner highlighting a unique ribbon clothing size system. There are two changing rooms, a seating area, and ample free parking; all conveniently located at the end of the M55 motorway.
Suitbae’s main priority remains online selling, however, we are now welcoming customers for face-to-face sales, Monday to Saturday from 12pm – 8pm.”
The letting to Suitbae was completed on a 3 year lease agreement.
Lizzie Woodburn, Lettings / Management Surveyor at Whittle Jones North west added “It is great that we have been able to secure the letting to Suitbae, especially given the current uncertain climate. We look forward to working with them as their business develops.
We have a diverse range of companies on Blackpool & Fylde Industrial Estate which makes it a popular location for those looking to relocate or expand within the area. With its great access to Junction of 4 of the M55 it is one of Blackpool’s prime business locations.”
