Former JC Rook & Sons store in Ramsgate goes on rental market

The former JC Rook & Sons site

The former JC Rook & Sons shop in Ramsgate has gone on to the rental market.

The King Street shop was closed in March this year when the firm went into administration.

Shops in Broadstairs and Ramsgate and the factory site in Ramsgate were shut with all staff being made redundant.

J C Rook and Sons had been trading in Kent for well over half a century but owed some £2million when it shut.

The site is now being marketed by Lovetts Ramsgate with a rental of £33,000 pa.

The store is still kitted out with chiller units for window displays, butchery and delicatessen. The hot units remain in place and leading off of the main shop floor is a cold store and a further ante room offering a sink with running hot water.

The agent says: “We feel that this shop has so much to offer and could lend itself to a restaurant, a cafe or any business looking to locate to the heart of Ramsgate town.

“A further offering on the whole building, including the shop, is available which incorporates the warren of rooms over several floors. The whole building is on offer for a rental of £4,700.00 per calendar month. The uppers have their own access from Abbots Hill.”
