Businessman Neil O’Boyle is thanking locals for their support as he launches his new kitchen makeover showroom in Gateshead.

Despite delays caused by the national lockdown, the doors are now open at Dream Doors Gateshead and Sunderland in Durham Road, Low Fell.

Neil said he is looking forward to doing his part to bring commerce back to the high street by offering low cost, high-quality kitchen makeovers and refits.

Neil said: “I want to say thank you to the community for the support my team and I have been shown already.

“While we were working to get the showroom set up and opened, we received lots of messages of support from town residents.

“People have been really supportive while we’ve been setting up here and I think they are keen to back a local business.

“We’ve also been hiring staff locally, so it’s nice to think we’re having a positive impact on the local economy as well.”

  1. hi

    I am a business that has been on low fell high st for over 9 years and its been a roller coaster over those years, when we came to low fell it was thriving with over 5 banks and a post office on the high St. This came at a price of £18.000 rent and at that time £7.000 business rates a year. Unfortunately after 6 months trading the council decided to charge for parking at the 2 car parks at low fell immediately business dropped dramatically and I believe this was the start of the decline of low fell high st. One by one I watch every bank close making the high st even less busy even the post office couldn’t afford to be on the high st and moved into pets and bits on the side st.
    I was classed as a none essential business during lockdown and had to close over 3 months in that time I still had the confidence to totally refurbish the shop inside also investing in being a sweet shop as well and lots of other changes as before lock down we wetnt making ends meet as i had to cut back my 3 staffs hours, my hard work had paid off as after lockdown for 4 weeks business was fantastic and staffs hours were back to normal until one morning the barriers arrived in low fell and like flicking a switch most business were affected immediately as the footfall and taking for most business are down by over 40 % in sll this time the rent remains the same even though the high st certainly isn’t thriving and the rent doesn’t justify this

    Many thanks Ronnie Pattison
