The unit in Victoria Street, St Albans, Hertfordshire, passed by hundreds of commuters every day, has been taken over by a kitchen retailer who has been looking to establish themselves in St Albans for many years. 

Schmidt Kitchens, currently based in Palmers Green, have taken over the unit at 137-139 Victoria Street, St Albans, and are currently fitting out following the sad demise of the Bathstore group.

Mark Bunting of Aitchison Raffety who negotiated the transaction advised, “We are delighted to welcome Schmidt to St Albans which has avoided a vacant unit in the town and secured ongoing income for our client.  We are aware that they have been looking for over a year and know them well as I bought my new kitchen from there – we wish them all the best”.

A new lease was agreed to Schmidt and the previous lease to the Bathstore franchisee was surrendered on the circa 3,000 sq ft unit.
