Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Vaghela General Stores. This convenience store was established in the 1940’s and has been a great success over the years. Our client took over the store is 1984 and is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The store generates its turnover from the sale of general groceries, confectionary, alcohol, cigarettes and newspaper’s. We are advised the current turnover for the business is an advised, £228,800 per annum.

We believe the business could increase its turnover massively. Some ways in which we believe the new owner could increase turnover is to-

Extent the opening hours

Introduce Paypoint/Payzone

Introduce the Lottery

Offer a parcel collection service

Offer dry cleaning

Extend the range of products stocked

Sub-let the rear detached store room

Above the store is a flat which could be a perfect owner’s accommodation. The flat is currently used as storage, but would be a great home for a couple. The flat could even be rented out to generate an extra income.

There is little competition in the area, and so the store receives most of its trade from the locals. We believe footfall will increase in the area as there is granted planning permission for a significant number of flats, which will be located across the road.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a purchaser looking for a profitable store in the heart of a welcoming community. Hilton Smythe highly recommend early viewing to avoid disappointment.
