Business Description
Aspire is pleased to offer for sale this freehold convenience store, newsagents and off licence business, located on the edge of the popular village of Gobowen, near Oswestry, Shropshire.
The shop is situated in a prime trading location, in the centre of a thriving, densely populated residential area, ensuring high daily footfall and regular repeat custom. The business benefits from prominent frontage and is set back from the road, providing customer car parking and outside stock display areas.
The shop is within walking distance of the village centre, local public transport and the train station.
Gobowen is a large village with a variety of shops, businesses and amenities, with additional facilities available at Oswestry, approximately 3 miles away. The village sits on the main A5, offering good access to the local conurbations and further afield.
The motorway network is available at Chester and Stoke-on-Trent.

A newsagents shop has been trading on this site since the 1950’s, and this has been in the careful hands of the current owners for almost 20 years, only now being offered for sale due to retirement. The owners have continued to enhance and develop the business and enjoy an enviable, close relationship with their extensive customer base.

The shop sells a range of supplies including newspapers and magazines, fresh bread, vegetables, toiletries, ice cream, confectionery, greeting cards, convenience foods and alcohol, and offers seasonal products and regular special offers.

The business trades from a single storey, detached unit, with a forecourt to the front suitable for customer parking and external displays.
Internally the open plan sales area accommodates shelving and racking to perimeter walls, single and double drinks chiller cabinets, card display rack, chest display freezer and chest ice cream freezer. The sales counter holds the electronic cash register, electric weighing scales, national lottery scratch cards display and health lottery tickets, Pay Zone terminal and cigarette gantry to the rear.
There is a stock storage room to the rear, with worktops and a double sink, and a WC.

Externally, there is a garden / grassed area to the rear, which accommodates a storage shed. There is also a secure storage area to the side of the premises.

Social media is in place, which is regularly updated by the current owners.

There is good potential to increase turnover. Initially extending the opening hours into the evenings would boost income, as well as extending the range of stock available, in particular the alcohol range.
Introducing new lines is also an option, perhaps offering hot food or plants and flowers.
The land at rear of the premises offers opportunities for expansion. It may be possible to build a two-storey extension, expanding the retail areas and perhaps incorporating living accommodation. This would be subject to local planning permission.

We understand there is a new housing estate being developed in the area, which will further enhance turnover.

Monday to Saturday – 6.30am to 6.00pm
Sundays – 6.30am to 1.00pm

Freehold business for sale – £89,000
