Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular convenience store business, ideally located within the town of Romford, Greater London.

The business was originally established in the 1950’s and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2010. 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 £68,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.

Our client offers a wide range of household and convenience items, including chilled goods, soft drinks, confectionery, snacks, cleaning products and household items, to name a few, as well as offering Payzone, the Health Lottery and Dart Charge. The premises boasts a spacious sales and display area and is well-equipped to suit the trade.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours of the business and expanding the range of products available. There is also scope to embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and services offered.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Gobion’s Grocers occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located within the town of Romford in north east London. The business is located within a parade of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore benefiting from a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The area of the business is surrounded by densely populated residential areas, from which the business derives much of its trade.
