Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Village Wines. Our client first took over this successful store in 2010. This is a popular business that can be highly profitable. The owner is now looking to sell the business due to other business interests.
The business offers a range of alcohol from world wines, lager, ales, ciders, spirits and alcopops. They also sell some confectionary and soft drinks. The store serves a generous amount of repeat loyal trade and sees a high amount of custom from passing trade.
According to the 2015 accounts, the business generates a healthy turnover of around £328,000 per annum with a gross profit of 16%. We feel the business could benefit from Lottery sales. The Lottery is always a great way of boosting turnover.
The new owner could look in to the option of offering deliveries. The store does have a 24 hour licence which could be utilised more to stand out from any competitors. This area has dense housing which the store could provide the deliveries to. Deliveries and opening later hours should maximise sales.
Our client has run the business to a high standard over the years. This store really is a turnkey opportunity; and would be perfect for any purchaser looking for this type of business in a busy main road location. The store comes fully equipped and also has a walk in safe.
The business requires a new owner with experience who can take this already thriving store to the next level.
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full quality of this store.
