Business Description
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Delves Convenience Store.

There has been a Newsagents cum Convenience Store at this site since the 1960’s and the current owner has owned it for the last 3 years or so.
The business is now being sold albeit reluctantly only so that the owner can concentrate on other business interests that will leave him more time to spend with his young family.

This busy little convenience store sells;
• Newspapers and Magazines
• Tobacco and vaping products
• Confectionery
• Crisps and snacks
• Bread, milk and dairy products
• General groceries
• Beers, wines and spirits
• Frozen food
• Ice creams.

Additionally, the business has a PayPoint terminal which takes approximately £4,500 per week and a Lotto terminal which takes approximately £1,200 per week. The News Bill is roughly £400 per week and the business has a morning and evening news-round. The business is also an agent for Amazons fast growing ‘Pass my Parcel’ service.

The business has an impressively high number of regular customers and enjoys great visibility on the internet.

Scope to Improve
1. Advertising and marketing campaign, perhaps a leaflet drop locally
2. Maximise the use of social media
3. Website to extol the products and services offered
4. Extend the opening hours
5. Explore the possibility of removing the bollards at the front of the store to allow more parking.
6. Introduce fresh fruit and veg or flowers and plants.

Reasons to buy
1. Ideal owner managed or husband and wife business
2. Offers a real opportunity to increase turnover significantly, current owner has been running at a pace to suit
3. Little competition locally
4. Prime trading position on the busy West Bromwich Road.
5. Low running costs with inexpensive rent and no business rates.
6. Priced to facilitate a quick sale

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment. This great little business is likely to attract considerable interest.
