One of Melbourne's most prominent high streets, Church Street in Brighton, has attracted two national retailers to the area - Trenery and Bonds Kids. 

Trenery, a subsidiary of Country Road Limited, has secured more than 700 square metres at 46a Church Street (pictured above), while Bonds Kids, a subsidiary of Pacific Brands, is opening a store at 40B Church Street.

It is understood the Trenery tenancy is the first Victorian suburban stand-alone store as part of a select roll out of stores under the guidance of the Country Road group.

The premises were previously occupied by Browns Bakery and returned about $86,000 per annum, however Trenery have committed to a rental close to $135,000 per annum.
“The space has now been transformed into an ultra-modern tenancy and is regarding as one the most impressive in the street,” said Fitzroys senior associate and leasing agent, Mark Talbot.

The 40B Church St lease to Bonds Kids is smaller in size but attracted a rental close to $100,000.

“Previously occupied by Stride-Rite, Bonds Kids have also completed a high-end fit out of their new premises, which is sure to rival other children’s wear operators within the street,” Mr. Talbot said.

The Bonds Kids group was currently undertaking a rapid expansion into a select number of shopping strips with, Fitzroys also brokering the lease to Bonds Kids at the Malvern Road, Hawksburn.

The rent payable for Malvern Road store tenancy is believed to be about $90,000 per annum.
