This is a rare opportunity to purchase a well established newsagents and convenience store on a busy main road position in the affluent area of Ashton-in-Makerfield, Wigan, Lancashire.
Ainscough News & Convenience operates from an impressive detached building on Bolton Road in Ashton in Makerfield and has been trading strongly for many years. The current owner has been in possession since 2003 and has built an impressive trading history and the business has earned an enviable reputation within the town. The building has a striking presence on the high street and is well known throughout the local community, with the business being synonymous in this location for over 100 years.
Externally, the building benefits from ample on street car parking and also a large forecourt which currently is not used for customer car parking but could easily be used for this purpose if a new owner desired to do so, subject to planning.
Once inside this fully air conditioned building, the layout and whole design of the store has been created with the sole intention to utilise all available space to maximise the variety and amount of product lines. This has been achieved excellently whilst also delivering a bright and airy atmosphere to the whole store. The shop itself is designed around an 'L' shape and this creates plenty of wall space for shelving.
The domestic accommodation offers 5 bedrooms on the 1st floor, one bedroom offering En Suite, the 1st floor also has a large family bathroom. The lounge, Kitchen and dining area are located on the ground floor, which were immaculately presented at the time of our visit.
The business currently does not offer alcohol for sale, an area any new owner could take advantage of, which would inevitable lead to a large increase in takings. Another source of income would be to add the option for payzone and paypoint, not currently in place. The nearest competition to this busy convenience store is up to 1 mile away
With the vendor selling due to retirement, this is a phenomenal, rare opportunity to purchase a very busy, profitable convenience store. We advise arranging a viewing to escape disappointmentFixtures:
