Wake Smith acts for Sheffield barbers in growth move

Wake Smith Solicitors 04 June 2024

Wake Smith Solicitors has helped an award winning Sheffield barber shop expand into bigger premises in the Heart of the City development.

Independently-owned Savills Barber Group, established in 2009, has become the first tenant to take ground and first floor space on Pinstone Street, which forms part of the council’s £470m city centre redevelopment.

The move to the boutique-style Laycock House allows the local grooming brand to expand their renowned barbershop, which offers appointments and walk-in services for men’s haircuts, hot towel wet shaves and beard trims.

It will also boast a sector leading training academy, which will open on 24 June and offer apprenticeships, NVQ Qualifications and Advanced Skills training.

Paul Gibbon, director in our commercial property team acted for Savills on the leasework which sees it move from its much smaller, former base on Devonshire Street. Savills will also open a training academy on site from June 24.

Joth Davies of Savills Barber, which also operates the Bricky Row Barbershop in Totley, said: “We are excited to finally move into Heart of the City. It’s long been a goal of ours to be part of this exciting development and witnessing the transformation of the city centre has confirmed to us that this is the right move for Savills.

“We have some fantastic new neighbours, and this is only going to improve with the launch of the Cambridge Street Collective food hall, Leah’s Yard, Radisson Blu and more.

“It’s great that we can offer our current loyal patrons a brilliant new space, as well as new services. We hope to welcome a whole new cohort of customers too to our flagship store.

“The new fit out makes the most of the unit’s Victorian characteristics, with the striking interior balancing traditional barber shop aesthetics and an up-to-date modern twist.

“Being able to open our state-of-the-art training academy will also enable us to support other businesses with staff learning and development via a robust apprenticeship programme and other training opportunities. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Savills.”

Paul Gibbon, director at Wake Smith said: “This is a high profile move for a successful Sheffield business and we wish them the best of luck in the Heart of the City.”

Talking about Wake Smith, Joth added: “This was the seventh premises I have been involved with and there were some complicated elements to this lease which really needed a legal expert and Paul Gibbon was onto the details all the way through, helping smooth the process.”

Savills is the latest occupier in the retail element of the council’s £470m Heart of the City development and joins retailers Fjallraven and Yards Store on Charles Street and Sostrene Green, Weekday, Monki and Marmaduke’s Cafe on Cambridge Street.
