Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Bargain Spot. This is a well-established store, which was originally opened in 1931. The store is popular in this location and receives a generous amount of repeat loyal trade. Our client took over the store in 2009 and is now looking to sell the business due to the desire to focus on other business interests.
The shop runs as a traditional village newsagents, offering a variety of convenience products. They sell pet food, confectionary, cigarettes, cards, gift wrapping, stationary, hardware and much more; this is the go to shop within the area.
The shop is currently turning over a figure of £286,000 per annum, with a gross profit circa of 22%. The business also offers news sheets this generates a good steady annual income of around £72,800. Lottery commission also generates an annual income of circa £13,000. There is also a Payzone which adds to the turnover.
The shop is open 7 days a week, however, we feel that the new owner should look to open longer hours; this should maximise potential custom. Offering off licence products such as beers, wines and spirits could also be a great way of increasing income.
This is a fantastic opportunity that is not to be missed. The high street location allows for a high amount of footfall and passing trade.
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
