Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected Newsagents which is located in Falmouth. The business has been established for over 16 years and has been in the careful hands of my client for the past 13 years and is reluctantly being offered for sale so that they can concentrate on other business ventures. Since ownership they have continually invested in new equipment with the business undergoing a full re-fit along with complete re-wiring within the last two and a half years. Air conditioning was also fitted along with a Jack's Beans Coffee machine. The fixtures and fittings which are all bought and paid for and are included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The business is owner operated and requires the help of 2 part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of £270,000 net of vat pa. Moor News retails a range of products such as newspapers, magazines, confectionery, ice creams, cold drinks, greeting cards, gifts, tobacco, e cigarettes and vape products, stationery and has a National Lottery Terminal that currently only processes scratch cards but can upgraded. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by offering new services and by extending the current opening hours in the evening and by opening on Sunday. (The business does not currently open on a Sunday) There are a number of new housing developments being built within the area which would give further potential to increase the newspaper delivery rounds. The business already enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
