Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of Drinks 4U which is a well-established Off Licence / Convenience store with a renowned reputation amongst residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a high turnover local business in an area teeming with customers.

There has been a similar type of business at this site for over 30 years and the current owner has run it successfully and lucratively as Drinks 4 U for the last 10 years or so. The business has been a real labour of love for him and his family accruing many regular customers and a burgeoning reputation.

This lovely little business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to the vendors wish to relocate to India, he is keen to see his beloved Off Licence/Convenience Store pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner(s) who can take this already thriving business to the next level.

The business has an impressive number of regular customers, many of whom are known on a first name basis by the current owner who is a popular and well-respected member of the local community.

Reasons to Buy:


  • A well-established business with an enviable reputation and many existing customers.
