Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this very well-established Premier Express convenience store, selling a wide range of products from tobacco to sweets.
The shop itself has been run by the current owner for 17 years now and is very well established. He is now looking towards a very well-earned retirement.
There is also a substantial 2 bedroom attached house which comes with the business and is ideal as owner’s accommodation or could easily be rented out for at least £700/£800 per calendar month, if not more, which would provide a very useful income.
There is an extensive inventory of fixtures and fittings to include large drinks fridge, shelving and racking, serving counter and till and with more advertising, an increased product range and perhaps use of social media, we believe this shop could be taken to the next level.
Viewing is a must to appreciate what’s on offer.Location
