Beatles' former Apple Store becomes an estate agent

London agents Marsh & Parsons are opening their 19th office on the site of the former Beatles Apple Store in Baker Street.

The firm is headed by Peter Rollings and is now owned by LSL.

The Beatles Apple Store opened in 1967 with John Lennon and George Harrison hosting. Guests included Eric Clapton, Cream bassist Jack Bruce, Cilla Black and theatre critic Kenneth Tynan. The psychedelic shop sold books, jewellery and clothes.

Marsh & Parsons will more prosaically be merchandising houses for sale and let. On the sales side, they are offering a 0% sales fee for the first three months until August 30. This represents a reduction from a standard commission of 2.5% and will save customers in the area an average of nearly £25,000 based on average prices.
The £300,000 refurbished office has room for 16 staff and contains a huge media wall and a glass and steel staircase.

Rollins said: “This will be our fourth  office in Westminster and a perfect fit with our existing offices. The opening reflects our current expansion plans across the capital.”
