EMF are delighted to be appointed to market this busy convenience store situated just off the city centre on the highly desirable St. Benedict’s Street. Boasting a strong weekly turnover and with little immediate competition this is likely to be of much interest to potential buyers.

With the current high demand for this type of business we would urge you to contact us at your earliest convenience to arrange a viewing.

The vendor has owned and run the business since 2016 and is now only reluctantly putting it up for sale due to the family relocating. Since acquiring it the vendor has done an excellent job of building the business up and refitting the premises meaning that it is in great order for a new owner to take it on-wards.

With a turnover of c. £700k per annum demonstrating what a good site this business is situated at, and with an opportunity to increase the current opening hours to pick up the busy evening trade that there is in this particular location. It is noted that the vendor has taken a more hands off approach to running the business having the benefit of a great staff team but this provides a new owner with the option to do the same or to take a more hands on role which would increase margins accordingly.

The well stocked business offers a wide selection of convenience products and especially does well with sales of freshly made breakfast and lunch rolls, hot and cold drinks, alcohol and tobacco. They also provide a small range of newspapers and magazines. Lotto and Payzone services are provided as are monthly accounts for local businesses in the street.
