We are delighted to be able to provide you with the chance to acquire a long established freehold convenience store and off licence situated in a busy suburban area of this popular North Warwickshire town. As well as the business the property also includes substantial family accommodation with many newly fitted items together with extensive parking and a large garden.
The business enjoys solid takings built over the many years that the current owner has been here and together with the property on offer provides a wonderful opportunity for a hands-on family to run a successful operation and enjoy the living accommodation that will be theirs as well.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF
The shop has been family run for over 20 years and has built a strong customer base over that period as is shown by the weekly takings in the region of £5,400 and we are advised by the owner that a gross profit of 19.7% is currently achieved. The weekly news bill is £300 p.w at cost and there are at present 2 morning delivery rounds and 2 on a Sunday.
The shop sells a wide range of products including newspapers, magazines, greeting cards, groceries, toiletries as well as a sizeable off-licence selection.
The business benefits from a large parking forecourt to the front, a bus stop close by and 4 schools in the surrounding area. It further benefits from low overheads as there is no wage bill, currently nil rates and of course no rent to pay.
ACCOMMODATIONALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.
The large forecourt allows for parking for 6-7 vehicles and leads to the entrance to the refitted sales area measuring approx. 630 sq. ft. The shop benefits from a terrazzo tiled floor, new suspended ceiling with recessed lightings panels, CCTV cameras and split screen monitor.
