Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very busy service station and convenience store, which is ideally located within the town of Leigh, Greater Manchester.

The business has been a petrol station for many years and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 1992. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates an excellent turnover with a good gross profit.

Our client provides a variety of services including the sale of both petrol and diesel, while the convenience store offers the Lottery, tobacco products, newspapers, magazines, soft drinks, confectionery, greeting cards, dairy produce, milk, bread and car accessories, to name a few, as well as Payzone facilities. The business sells approximately 6,000 litres of fuel per week.

The first floor of the property offers a two-bedroom flat, which is currently rented out, generating extra income of £300 per calendar month, but could be used as owners’ accommodation. Our client currently owns the adjoining three-bedroom house and would consider selling it to the purchaser of the business, price to be negotiated with our client.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the shop to create additional retail areas. A new owner could also apply for an alcohol licence, which would increase the turnover dramatically. There is also the option to offer a car wash on the forecourt.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

This busy service station and convenience store occupies substantial premises on the very busy Wigan Road in Leigh, Greater Manchester. The business is surrounded by a mix of both residential and commercial properties, from which the business derives much of its trade. The service station also benefits from excellent car parking facilities on the forecourt.

Leigh is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan in Greater Manchester. According to the 2011 census, the town had a residential population of 52,855. Leigh has a traditional town centre with daily outdoor and indoor markets. Part of the town in pedestrianised and there are local independent and multiple retailers.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. The nearest railway station is Daisy Hill, which is approximately 4 miles away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the business being situated on the A578, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks.
