This is an exciting opportunity to purchase a charming village store which occupies a monopoly position in the popular village 3 miles north east of Ulverston, Cumbria.
Popular Village Store occupies a prominent position at the heart of the village with no competition and the business subsequently attracts high levels of regular local and passing trade throughout the day from local residents, as well as the large number of tourists, walkers and cyclists who frequent the village.
Having been under present family ownership since 2002, this well known and heavily relied upon business has forged strong relationships with the surrounding community and therefore enjoys an extensive and loyal customer base. The Village Store operates from a highly visible and imposing double fronted, four storey property providing ground floor retail space with unusually spacious and versatile family accommodation set across three floors.
The sales area is well fitted with a good range of quality fixtures and fitments, creating a bright and welcoming environment. The Village Store retails a range of newspaper and magazine titles, tobacco products, soft drinks, bread, wines, beers, spirits, dairy products, groceries, stationary and greetings cards as well as an outreach Post Office service operating three half days per week.
The Village Store is a successful and profitable business, yet still offers terrific potential for growth and development. The business therefore represents a first class investment for an ambitious family who can extend the opening times, introduce a wider selection of stock lines with potential for serving teas, coffees, sandwiches etc. to capitalise on the tourist market. These enhancements will significantly increase the weekly sales, whilst ultimately enhancing the overall profitability of the business.
Only now being offered for sale due to retirement, viewing is highly recommended at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment.
Summary. This is an exciting opportunity to acquire a heavily relied upon business with a bright future and a substantial freehold property. Only now being offered for sale due to retirement, viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
