Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular newsagent and off licence business, ideally located in Halesowen, West Midlands.
The business was originally established in the 1960s and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2013. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire to concentrate on other interests and a possible move abroad. The business currently operates 6½ days per week and according to the 2014 accounts generates a turnover in the region of £282,600 per annum, with a good gross profit.
Our client offers a variety of goods, including newspapers and magazines, confectionery, snacks, a few household items, soft drinks, alcohol, tobacco products, the Lottery and Scratch cards, to name a few. The property boasts 54 sq. metres of floor space, it is well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the quality of the goods and service offered, which has resulted in a loyal client base, with a good volume of repeat trade and recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods offered or introduce newspaper deliveries. There is also scope to offer Paypoint or Payzone facilities or become an agent for parcel delivery companies.
This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a busy newsagent and off licence business in a prime trading location; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
