Business Description
Profitable newsagency business located in prominent position close to Ayr Railway Station. Scope to develop existing trade. Best suited to owner operator. Short trading hours.

The business trades from a single retail unit located within a parade of complementary businesses. The frontage is predominantly glazed with a free to use cash machine on one side, display window to the other and eye-catching signage above. Parking is available in the surrounding areas.

Our client has owned and operated News Express for approximately 4 years now although a traditional CTN has been operating from this site for many, many years. Our client has reluctantly placed the business on the market due to ill health and the business is such that an owner operator is best suited to running the business.

As well as offering the usual products associated with this type of business such as newspapers, magazines, tobacco, confectionery and a small line of groceries, the business also offers a good selection of tourist associated products such as postcards, magnets and Ayr related gifts.

The business also offers the Paypoint facility, Lotto and a parcel collection service as well as earning good commission from the external ATM.

News Express offers an ideal opportunity for buyers looking for a well run, unlicensed retail business located in a busy part of West Scotland.
Trading Hours:
Monday to Saturday 6.00am to 6.00pm
Sunday 8.00am to 2.00pm

Tenure: Leasehold
