Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular convenience store in Newport, Gwent. The business was established by our client in 2004 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client`s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a healthy turnover in the region of £1,000,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
The turnover is generated from the sale of everyday convenience items, household goods, fresh fruit and vegetables, chilled goods, frozen foods, confectionery and tobacco products, to name a few. The business also boasts a Halal butchers to the rear of the shop, which has proved to be very popular. The shop is well-presented throughout and boasts a large sales and display area, with racking and shelving to suit the trade.
The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the stock and services available, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours and perhaps introducing new lines, and perhaps applying for an alcohol licence. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already popular and thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
