A shopping parade on an iconic street in Derby’s historic Cathedral Quarter is now full following a flurry of new deals.

All the business premises in The Strand are now either occupied or under offer, according to Trevor Raybould, from commercial property agent Raybould and Sons.

Its latest occupant is long-established Derby tailor Ashley Buckley, who has moved from a first-floor studio in Iron Gate into refurbished street level premises where he continues to offer bespoke men’s tailoring and alterations.

He has been joined in The Strand by Ruth Day who specialises in wedding dresses, alterations and dress making.

Trevor said: “Despite all the challenges of the past 18 months, it is testament to the strength and versatility of Derby’s high street offer that all the premises are now occupied or under offer in this iconic part of the Cathedral Quarter.”

“The Strand has always been popular with shoppers and essentially offers the diversity of a department store in one street.

“Nearby, The Strand Arcade will soon see a new arts and crafts shop opening and footfall will be further strengthened by several major redevelopments planned or underway in the nearby Victoria Street, Wardwick and now, of course, Becketwell, which will all have a positive impact on footfall in the coming months and years.”
