THE BUSINESS ITSELF
The business has been successfully operated by the vendors for the past 30 years and has enjoyed consistent and strong trading figures throughout. This though is no surprise given how well regarded and supported it is by the local community.
Recent years show a steady turnover in the region of £7k p.w gross and £300k p.a net with the good levels of profit one would expect with this type of business. Whilst it would of course have appeal to an established operator it would in our opinion make an ideal first business for someone due to its size, low overheads and being well established.
Whilst previously a traditional newsagents the business has successfully added a large range of greeting cards and does very good levels of trade in this line. They have also added a small range of convenience products which could be expanded upon should a new owner so wish.

The business operates from the ground floor of the 2 storey end terrace property which forms part of a small parade of similar properties and businesses. To the front is an open space of free public parking and grassed areas giving a pleasant outlook and ease of access for customers.
The business sits behind a full width glazed frontage providing good natural light inside. Internally the shop is well laid out with a central double sided display unit with an excellent selection of greeting cards to one side and convenience items to the other. One side wall is fitted out for magazines, papers and stationary whilst the other has an extensive selection of crisps and chocolates. There is an ice cream freezer to the front and a chilled refrigerated unit to the rear for drinks and fresh food. The service counter is situated to the front with tobacco sales behind and providing space for the main Lotto terminal and till.
The main retail room measures approximately 8.2m deep by 5.1m wide with a tiled floor and suspended ceiling and strip lighting above. To the rear is a small but useful store room fitted out with shelving and giving access to the toilet as well.
