Sykes For Sale

18 Apr

So, Reddish’s one and only coffee shop is up for sale. It’s such a shame and it would be wonderful if whoever buys it keeps it as a coffee shop. Reddish really needs places like this for people to socialise, relax and just pass the time drinking coffee and reading a paper.

There doesn’t appear to be any word of this news on  the official Sykes’ blog, but the great big ‘for sale’ sign on the side of the shop isn’t being too inconspicuous. It’s on the market for a snip at £32,500. Any takers?

    Hi,Just to let everyone in Reddish know Sykes Coffee Bar is NOT Closing down :0) The business is up for sale because we just don’t have the time to run it as we have other business commitments. We however want some to buy it and keep it as Sykes Coffee Bar as everyone keeps telling us they don’t want us to go. We are hoping the right person will come along and will be able to open 7 days a week and also make use of our alcohol license. So if you know anyone who fits the bill let them know but in the mean time were staying put and will be open 5 days a week Tuesday – Saturday 8.45am-4.30pm :0)
    Many Thanks Sykes
