Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this delightful Convenience Store which is located in the popular Cornish village of St Keverne . The business has been established for many years and has been in the careful hands of our clients since 2008. Reluctantly the business is now being offered for sale so that they can enjoy a well deserved retirement. Since ownership they have continually refurbished and invested in new fixtures and fittings which are all bought and paid for and 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. St Keverne Stores is owner operated and employs the help of 12 part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of £941,930 net of vat and boasts a high net profit. The retail area is approximately 72 sq m and stocks a fine range of fresh bakery products, dairy produce, locally sourced meat products, ready meals, general groceries, tinned products, frozen foods, confectionery, tobacco lines, beers, wines and spirits, cleaning products, fire wood and logs amongst others. Other services include The National Lottery. The business is totally independent and not partnered to any supply brands which gives the benefit of being able to purchase items from anywhere and enables a better than average gross profit margin. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade should you wish by expanding upon the current opening times. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many new visiting tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established lifestyle 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.
