EM&F are pleased to bring to market this long established newsagents and convenience store situated on a busy suburban shopping parade. Offering an ideal opportunity for someone wishing to acquire their first business or to add to an existing portfolio of an experienced investor.
With solid weekly takings and scope to increase further in the hands of someone new this ideal little business is well worth a look.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF
The current owners have run the business for the past 10 years and have built a strong customer base as is shown by weekly takings which are in the region of £5,500. Owner operated and assisted by family this well run shop would give a great opportunity for another family to come in and be able to work together.
The shop sells a wide range of news, magazines, lottery, confectionery, greeting cards, groceries, toiletries and pet food. Currently only counter news sales, there is clear scope for deliveries to the nearby large housing estates. In our opinion there is also scope for a Post Office subject of course to the usual consents.
