City Business Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this well-established convenience store. The business has been successfully run by our client since 2006 who has worked tirelessly to transform the business into what it is today. Turnover is increasing weekly and is currently £9500 average per week.
The principal business activities lie in the serving of everyday commodities - bread, toiletries, groceries, alcohol and tobacco to name a few - with a consistent revenue from Lottery/Scratch cards. The business currently opens seven days a week, with a constant flow of customers from the neighbouring, densely-populated residential area. The business benefits from ample store parking. Over the past few years, our client has successfully transformed the fortunes of this sustainable business. Scope for further improvement could include introducing sales of other product lines, along with extended opening hours plus paper rounds.
The business reluctantly comes to the market due to our client’s family commitments and would suit an owner/manager to realise greater profits/wage.
#If the business is totally owner-run it should realise a wage/profit per week up to £1000!!! #
