St Cuthbert’s Arcade to launch this summer

Calling all small businesses, start-ups and would-be retailers!  The newly renovated St Cuthbert’s Arcade at 26 St Cuthbert’s Street is looking for potential tenants.

The Bedford Clanger can exclusively reveal that St Cuthbert’s Arcade will be open for business in early summer. The building, has undergone a full renovation, with a new roof and sympathetically restored frontage in keeping with its heritage location.  Inside are 18 individual shop units, ideal for small businesses and start-ups.

At the heart of the thriving St Cuthbert’s Street, the Arcade will be a great addition to the independent businesses in the area. From epanoui, Companions, Lingers butchers and GCH Fishmongers at Mill Street, up to Herd, Vanilla Tree, Mimo’s, the Blue Glass, Roosters, Rice and Bears & Tales, St Cuthbert’s Street is gaining a reputation as Bedford’s indie destination.

St Cuthbert’s Arcade

Trading from Monday to Saturday, St Cuthbert’s Arcade will include an on-site café for customers and staff.  With no set-up costs and with tenants required to give just one month’s notice, taking a space at St Cuthbert’s Arcade is a great way for would-be retailers to test the market, or for small businesses to grow.  With nearby parking at Lurke Street and close to the Cultural Quarter and the Quarry Theatre, we are certain St Cuthbert’s Street will be a great success.
