Amidst the current prevailing retail environment, White Commercial Surveyors continue to lease and sell retail buildings in Banbury which is situated on the London to Birmingham M40. Banbury is Oxfordshire’s second largest town and is seeing substantial and significant property growth in both the residential and commercial property markets.

White Commercial Surveyors have leased a large retail unit situated in Church Lane and previously known as Virginia House, a distinctive building with a large frontage (10.5m) and a total sales area of circa 2,250 sq ft., to Empire Tattoo Studio   This company has refurbished the accommodation specifically to suit their business which in turn has allowed them to expand. The new facilities provide an upbeat, friendly, clean and modern tattoo studio together with Blend, a coffee and juice bar concept.

Empire Tattoos have a reputation for high quality creative artworks across all styles of tattoos, from portraits to Polynesian, religious to Japanese and across all sizes. The company also provide body piercing and laser tattoo removal and images of their work can be found on their website.

Harvey White, Property Negotiator at White Commercial Surveyors, comments

Lee, Leon and co. had a vision for the long-vacant building on Church Lane and have successfully brought this to life, utilising the premises’ strengths to their best advantage. When you think of Tattoos and Piercings in Banbury, Empire Tattoo Studio are the first that come to mind. Empire Tattoos expansion will no doubt further their esteemed reputation in the town and become all the more popular with the additional offer of their new ‘Blend’ Juice/Coffee Bar”.

Lee Davis, Owner of Empire Tattoo Studio comments “We have wanted to expand our premises in Banbury for a while and 36a Church Lane is the perfect place. Open-plan tattoo studios are the way forward and we are delighted to be able to provide this, together with our organic juice and coffee bar ‘Blend’. We now have 6 tattooist artists and a staff total of 12. Potential customers are able to come in and view them at work and this means we can reach out to people who may not have been into a tattoo salon before. Banbury has nothing else like it. You can find details of us and our work on our social media platforms such as Instagram @empirebanbury and @blendjuiceandcoffee as well as on Facebook – Empire Tattoo Studio.”
