A SHOPPING mall in Wedmore is up for sale.

The Borough Mall, in Wedmore, has been run by Mrs Leavey for over 35 years. Residents often visit the 16 retail units that the mall has to offer, which house thriving local businesses and cafes, from the Pumpkin Cafe to a fruit shop. There is also a Post Office on site, meaning that residents don't have to go far to complete all their jobs for the day.

The property also features several office spaces and six letting apartments across the first and second floors. 

Mrs Leavey said: “The Borough Shopping Mall has served the Wedmore and surrounding community for over 35 years, and we hope the next owner will help it prosper for another 35 years.”

"I am expecting a wide range of interest for such a unique offering to the market. With 16 commercial units within the freehold, it has a diverse variety of businesses servicing the local community that will be a constant draw for both traders and customers.”
