Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market the busy convenience store Drinks Box. Established in the 1960’s, our client has been successfully running the business since inception in 2014.
The business occupies a prime trading location within a heavily populated residential area from which the business derives much trade, with the benefit of very little competition in the area. The store is well stocked with a good lay out, retailing a wide range of products including convenience items, newpapers and magazines, confectionery, tobacco, alcohol and other every day essentials. The business reports a healthy turnover of circa £260,000 per annum.
The business also offers a Paypoint service and receives good revenue from this, in addition to regular income from lottery sales and news sheets. A new owner may wish to look into introducing newspaper delivery rounds in the area to further income.
We believe the business has real potential to considerably increase the turnover. The current owner has been operating the business with a Manager in place to oversee the day to day running of Drinks Box, therefore this business would be ideal for an Owner/Manager or a husband and wife team looking to take this popular business to the next level to reduce the wages bill.
We would urge early viewing of the well-established going concern with low running costs and competitively priced for a quick sale.
