Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Dave’s Newsagents.
There has been an established newsagents for over 100 years on the site, with our clients successfully running Dave’s Newsagents since inception in 2000. Our clients have reluctantly decided to sell due to them wishing to take a well-deserved retirement. The business is currently generating a turnover of £114,000 per annum with a gross profit of circa 22%.
The business is well known in the area seeing a high amount of repeat trade from local residents, schools and businesses and benefits from good passing trade due to the businesses location. The business affords regular weekly income from 6 paper rounds in the area, with a large volume of magazines and newspapers also available in store. The shop also sells a selection of greeting cards, wrapping paper and stationary, sweets, chocolates, crisps, groceries, toiletries, ice creams, ice lollies and drinks as well as having a tobacco kiosk.
Although this is a good and healthy turnover we feel there is scope to improve by a small refurbishment being made to the shop or perhaps introducing more stock and product lines to the store and this will give the customers more choice and will attract new trade.
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 to avoid disappointment.
