Hilton Smythe are delighted to bring to the market a fantastic opportunity to purchase (on a leasehold basis) a busy mini supermarket store with fantastic potential Family Shopper Ltd. The store is well-run and popular, located on Rousay Drive (AB15) within the city of Aberdeen. The business has been in operation by the current owners for almost 2 years and is now on the market as our client looks to pursue another business opportunity.
The store stocks a wide selection of convenience items, cigarettes, alcohol, confectionery, assorted hardware items, Lottery and Payzone services.
There is scope to increase turnover with additional opening hours and expanding some of the retail lines currently stocked along with the introduction of a Post Office service (this has been applied for).
The premise is in a fantastic general condition and well maintained throughout, we feel that this is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this popular business to the next level. Early viewing comes highly recommended.Location
