Business Description
Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Grange News Limited, a newspaper and magazine delivery service which was established in 1998 by our vendor, who is now looking forward to retirement.
Grange News Limited is a newspaper and magazine delivery service, delivering all national newspapers,

• Local newspapers

• Magazines

Covering Woodbridge and surrounding locations including Kesgrave, Playford, Newbourne, Waldringfield, Ufford, and many other areas to the North and East of Ipswich.

Due to the local demographic there is a high demand for newspaper delivery within the area and the company has in excess of 1000 customers, both private and corporate, across 40 different rounds.

The business delivers to many corporate clients including a local campsite, a local store, 4 local public houses, nursing homes and schools.

Grange News Limited prides itself on getting the majority of daily newspapers delivered through the door by 8am each day and has only one competitor in the area, which we have been informed by our client, charges a higher price for delivery, therefore, leaving a possible area to increase revenue.

The company works on a 2 week or 4-week credit system for some customers, but also operates a pre-paid system, which brings in approximately £2000 per week.

The revenue stream does not just come from the delivery charge but also from a discount on the newspapers and magazines themselves, of up to 25%on some issues.

Although a profitable company the business works on word of mouth advertising only and would benefit from a website and social media pages to help promote the business in order to generate higher income.

The delivery charge could also be looked at to increase income.

As this is a business only sale, the incoming purchaser would need to have premises local to the area.

The staff are willing to stay on, 2 of which are related to the owner and they would be willing to help with the running of the business if required.

The current owner would be looking to help, for a transitional period.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
