Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market G G News Food and Wine. The store is a very busy well equipped convenience store, newsagents and off licence.
The business was originally established many years ago, and was taken over by our client 8 years ago. Our clients are now looking to retire, after working hard to run this profitable business. The current turnover for the business is a healthy £156,000 per annum.
The turnover is generated from the running of the traditional convenience store. The store also sells cigarettes, convenience foods, wines, spirits and scratch cards etc. We are advised that our clients offer a newspaper delivery round, 3 in the mornings and 5 on Sundays. They generate around £800 per week on news sheets.
We believe the turnover could be increased massively. One way in which this could be done is to expand stock sold. The large store has a mass amount of space with plenty of shelving.
The current opening hours could also be increased from 7:30pm to 10pm, this would boost trade and therefore revenue should increase. There is the opportunity to apply for a lottery terminal, this should also raise turnover.
The business is currently run at a steady pace to suit our clients needs, with a determined new owner there is a mass amount of scope to boost this already profitable well-known business.
We highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment for such a fantastic large business opportunity.
