Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Boosbeck Village Store.
This multi facet business was originally established in the 1940’s, and was taken over by our client in 2005. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's other business interests.
Currently running as a convenience store, newsagents offering 3 delivery rounds, off licence, sandwich shop, café and a bakery. The business is extremely popular in the area, and has a fantastic amount of repeat trade from locals. The store has a seating area of which customers can sit and eat hot or cold food this is popular with passing trade.
The business has a vast range of high quality products and services on offer. This reflects in the turnover. We are advised the store is currently generating a healthy turnover of around £254,750 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 20%.
We would highly advise the new owner to look into expanding the café area, this should increase revenue. With more of a focus on the café, the owner could also look at outside catering.
The business currently offers 3 newspaper delivery rounds. We believe that offering a delivery for lunch such as snacks, sandwiches and pasties to local businesses would generate an increase in revenue. There is a mass amount of potential for this business and could be highly profitable with the right buyer.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a buyer looking for an already profitable business. The property also comes with a great sized owner’s accommodation. Hilton Smythe highly recommend an early viewing to avoid disappointment.
