Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market E & S General Stores. Established back in the 1950’s the business has been successfully run by our client’s since inception in 1989. The business trades under the nationally recognised Premier branding.
The store is very well stocked with a wide range of products such as groceries, wines and spirits, tobacco, confectionery, frozen produce, fresh breads, dairy products, household items and every day essentials. The business also generates a good weekly income from newspaper sales, Paypoint commission and Lottery sales. E & S General Stores reports a healthy turnover of £425,000 for this financial year.
The store is very well presented, with a considerable amount of money been spent on refurbishment. Stock is clearly displayed throughout with ample storage available, allowing for the potential to extend the retail area if required. The business is at the heart of the community and very well supported by the local residents and benefits from very little competition in the locality. We believe there is the potential to further income by extending the opening hours as the business is currently run at a pace to suit our clients due to their impending retirement.
Above the business is superb living space, currently used as storage but very well-presented and easily reinstated as owner’s accommodation.
We highly recommend early viewing of this turn key business venture, ideal perhaps for a couple or young family looking for a life style change in this most desirable location.

The business is situated in a large residential area where the majority of the homes are owner occupied and date from the 1950’s to the present day and being a combination of detached, semi’s and terrace properties and from which the business derives much of its trade.
