An unused unit in one of the city's main shopping districts is now up and trading again – following a deal brokered by Garner Wood.

The Portsmouth commercial property firm secured the letting of 15 Palmerston Road to Greggs, the nationwide bakery chain.

It opened its doors and started trading last week after the firm secured the deal.

The firm's Clive Garner said: 'This is an important letting for Southsea shopping centre, and it shows significant faith in the Palmerston Road precinct as a retail centre.'
