Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy convenience store, which is ideally located within the town of Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire.
The business was originally established in the 1960s and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2006. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £728,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
Our client offers a wide variety of goods, including newspapers and magazines, greeting cards, household goods, dairy products, frozen food, confectionery, snacks, alcohol and tobacco products, to name a few.
The property boasts approximately 124 sq. metres of floor space with the main retail area to the ground floor, as well as two stock rooms, an office and WC. To the first floor is the owners’ accommodation consisting of a large lounge, kitchen, 3 x double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours later into the evening. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent goods and service offered, or introduce a newspaper/grocery delivery service within the area.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
