“We’ve had a positive response from independent stores and there’s a waiting list for traders, the interest is great” Joe told Valley News.
Joe is originally from Glasgow and moved to Salisbury with his family fifty years ago. Joes’ background has been based in the retail industry for thirty years alongside commercial property. Joe has owned the warehouse premises for many years, leasing it to a variety of businesses and now he has decided to use its’ impressive 4,500 square feet to reveal his passion for all things old and new. Joes’ inspiration for opening Fisherton Warehouse stems from his love of music through different eras and believes there’s a growing market for collecting timeless treasures.
“There’s a market for collecting, especially nostalgic one off pieces, people often feel nostalgic walking around and seeing things they used to own or grow up with, it brings back lots of memories” Joe said.
Joe plans to carry on supporting independent traders in his business and on Fisherton Street and is very optimistic and excited about the future of Fisherton Street and what it currently haves to offer.
“We will stay independent and make our shop the best it can be, and we hope to be an asset to Fisherton Street as it’s a fantastic street” Joe claimed
