Business Description
Hilton Smythe are pleased to offer for sale Madina General Stores. The current owner has had the business since 1979 and is now looking to retire and spend more time with his family, hence the reason it is coming onto the market.

The business is a general convenience store and a Halal butchery. It stocks fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as dairy. Additionally, it serves specialist foods, along with confectionary and snacks. Madina also stocks general groceries and frozen foods as well as household items.
