Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Goostrey News, a very well established newsagents’ business first established in the 1930’s.

Our client purchased the business in 2001 and is now looking to pass the business on due to his wish to now retire.

The business is a perfect example of a community loved store with many extra services offered in addition to the standard newsagents/confectionery led business.

The business is benefiting from an increase in approx. 10%-15% per week due to closure of 2 x local competitors. Because of Covid, our client has expanded his delievery service

This is now the only newsagents in the area offering newspaper deliveries with 10 rounds covering up to 10 miles radius from the shop. The area is home to many elderly residents who depend not only on their daily newspaper being delivered but the many extras our client has added. These include medicines from the local pharmacy, grocery essentials, milk & parcels.

We are advised the current news bill averages at £2870 per week.

The current choice of services/products include –


  • Newspapers, magazines

  • National lottery

  • Pay zone payment service

  • Freshly prepared sandwiches

  • New customer coffee machine

  • Soft drinks and milk, bread

  • Ice cream

  • Confectionery

  • Greeting cards, postcards

  • Parcel hub point

  • Children’s toys

  • Off licence

  • Stationery

  • Cigarettes, cigars & pipe tobacco

  • Leafleting, advertising & mail shots for local businesses


The success of the business is due particularly to the involvement within the local community groups, church, school, local families and supporting charity events.

We would recommend any new owner investigates the potential of adding a Post office local counter to offer more services and increase footfall. The business is also the only payzone store in the area. 

Very rarely to profitable businesses of this standard come to the open market and we therefore recommend early enquiry to avoid disappointment.
