Well presented convenience, off licence & post office business situated in a dense residential area in Swalwell, Newcastle upon Tyne.
A very attractive leasehold business with a newly acquired post office with good strong weekly sales. The business currently trades as Lifestyle Express and is presented to a very good standard. It is heavily relied upon by the local community and is in a strong trading position with plenty of passing trade. The store runs as a convenience store, off licence and has just introduced a post office. Other services include National Lottery and Pay Point.
Good commissions on lottery, internal cash machine and post office salary. The business is run by the owner and currently employs 5 part-time staff. A more hands on approach from a new owner/operator could decrease the staff wage bill and increase profitability. Post office salary has been estimated around £20,000.
The shop floor is refitted to a good standard with 2 x 4m drinks chillers and chest freezers and electric shutters. Ancillary areas include a good sized stockroom, kitchen & W.C . Owner has a genuine reason for sale.
