A restaurateur in Grantham is reassuring his customers that a ‘for sale’ outside his eatery does not mean it is closing.
In the words of Muhammed Karim, owner of Bindi in London Road, he is “keeping calm and currying on” as the building for which he pays rent goes to auction later this month.
Mr Karim, who has run his business from the premises for the past six years, said: “We have had over 100 phone calls with great concern, customers and the general public, thinking that Bindi Restaurant is up for sale. We would like to reassure all our customers and the people of Grantham that Bindi is NOT for sale.”
Savills will be auctioning off the property, described as a “mixed commercial and residential”, on June 27 in Nottingham, with a guide price of £250,000. However, Mr Karim says he has a long lease and any new landlord will have to offer an incentive for Bindi to move out.
He said: “If that was to happen we would relocate to other premises in the Grantham town centre. We have been serving the Grantham area for six years this year and wish to continue doing so.”
