Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this well priced convenience store which is easily managed from well fitted premises of approximately 31 sqm, offering a large range of supplies.

The shop has been run by the current owner for 2.5 years, however it is very well established, having been a convenience store for many years. The current owners are now looking to relocate to a different area and pursue new business interests.

We understand that the shop is currently turning over around £8,500 per week, which includes approximate weekly takings as follows; tobacco £1,000, alcohol £2,500, grocery £3,000, dairy £1,000 and frozen foods £800 per week.

They also offer cards, sweets, some newspaper sales, and a rented cash machine which earns around £150 per month and more.

We believe the store has potential to be taken to the next level, with a wider offering to include lottery, more advertising and local deliveries.

An internal inspection is very highly recommended to appreciate the potential and quality position on offer.

Calton Express is situated on Stroud Road, in Gloucester, a busy and sought after residential area of Gloucestershire. The business is around 1 mile away from the city centre.

These easily managed premises covering around 31 sqm, comprise of main shop area, a good-sized store room to the rear and WC.

There are a wide range of fixtures and fittings included within the sale as follows, new slushie machine, new coffee machine, new till and computer system, 2 display chillers, 3 bay chest freezer, serving counter, ice cream fridge, various racking and display shelving, tobacco gantry, CCTV system with 12 operational cameras and more.

The shop offers great potential for a ready willing and able purchaser and needs to be viewed to appreciate what’s on offer.

We are advised that the business is being sold as a leasehold opportunity with a 15-year lease, which we believe has around 12/13 years left to run. The rent payable is £9,000 per annum.

Financial Profile
We believe from the vendor that they are presently turning over around £8,500 per week, with potential for this to be improved.

According to the VOA website the current rateable value is £4,000, however the owners benefit from small business rate relief so don’t have any rates to pay at present.
