Business Description
BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe Commercial are delighted to introduce to the market this empty shop premises.  The former business that had been established for well over 150 years and had been under the careful control of our client for the previous 43 years, however the business has recently ceased trading as our client looks towards retirement.  

The village is a hive of activity with Chipping being a major attraction for tourists, ramblers especially throughout the summer season. In addition, the business benefitted from a loyal wealth of local custom, due to its enviable reputation.

Our client has seen the numerous changes time has brought to their former business, however, whilst trading it remained profitable throughout and they have seen the business flourish until the recent closure.

The former business benefited from being the only general store within the village and surrounding areas, and we feel this is a fantastic opportunity for any new purchaser to reinstate the business with the potential to further increase revenue through the expansion of the products offered for sale, perhaps by introducing newspaper sales or establishing an off licence arm of the business.

LOCATION
This empty shop premises is located in the picturesque village of Chipping within the Borough of the Ribble Valley. The village of chipping is nestled within the heart of the Forest of Bowland, an area renowned for natural beauty. Chipping is often regarded as being one of the most idyllic places certainly within the North West if not in Britain.

PREMISES
Aside from the retail area itself, the building is largely a blank canvas, which would easily lend itself to be converted into on site living accommodation or possible rental or potential expansion of the shop. There is currently planning permission in place to convert the vacant areas back into living accommodation.

The ground floor consists of the main sales area which is extremely well maintained, featuring original beams and attractive Georgian Style Shop window, and a portioned area which could easily be put back to use as part of the existing shop or be transformed into residential living accommodation.

From the ground floor there is a staircase leading to the lower ground floor, which is currently used as storage space, with a rear door leading on to an enclosed courtyard.

To the first floor there is currently a bathroom and the remaining space would be ideal if converted into living accommodation.
