Hilton Smythe is delighted to offer to welcome to the market this well-established and profitable newsagent and general store in Wavertree, Liverpool. The business was established over 20 years ago and has been in our client`s ownership for the past 2 years. only now is the business offered for sale due to our client`s unfortunate ill health. The business is currently open 7 days a week at a pace to suit our client and generates a turnover in the region of £225,000 with a gross profit of 20%.
Wavertree Village Store generates its turnover through the sale of newspapers, magazines, cards, tobacco and convenience lines. The business benefits from having an ATM machine installed, as well as a Lottery terminal, Pay Zone and Pay Point. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours and by introducing alcohol sales subject to necessary licenses, as well as introducing newspaper deliveries to the nearby residential areas. We feel this is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended
