Former Vickers site in Rhyl comes to market

A well-known plumber’s merchant’s that traded for nearly 90 years has closed down.

Vickers & Son Ltd shut its doors after 88 years in business – 84 years at Greenfield Place Rhyl. John Vickers, managing director for 45 years, retired in April.

Legat Owen has been appointed to market the building. The detached former trade and retail showroom comprises 8,879 sq ft space over two floors.

A Legat Owen brochure relating to the site reads: It has been predominately used for a number of years as a retail showroom and trade outlet. However, any prospective purchaser should make their own investigations with Conwy County Council with respect to their proposed use.

Mark Diaper, associate director at Legat Owen, said:

After 84 years of serving Rhyl town centre, the directors of Vickers and Son (Plumber’s Merchants) Ltd have taken the decision to retire and sell up.

The building is ideal for trade counter and showroom businesses and can take advantage of the building’s excellent location and specification.
