Sykes est mort, vive Sykes!

7 Sep


A while ago we reported that local coffee shop Sykes, on the corner of Sykes Street and Gorton Road, was up for sale. As one of our regular meeting places this saddened us. Although we felt it never fully reached its potential, it is a nice place to sit and have a cup of coffee, lunch or an ice cream.

We were really pleased to hear that Sykes has found a buyer and the indications are that the new owner wishes to develop the business further.

Agents Harvey Silver Hodgkinson told us “The sale of the cafe & sandwich bar business called Sykes Coffee Bar completed yesterday. Mrs Kanaris is now the proud owner of the business after signing a new 6 year lease on the premises. We would like to wish them the very best of luck with their new business.”

We can’t wait to meet Mrs Kanaris and certainly wish her every success. Sykes is an integral part of bringing the community together and with the right leadership, has the potential to be a great meeting place.

    I agree it has great potential, I wish the new owner all the best with it.
