Property Listing Details
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular convenience store/off licence business in Withington, Manchester. The business was established by our client in 2002 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients desire to re-locate.
The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £520,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 25%. Our client offers a wide range of convenience lines, frozen foods, alcohol, confectionery and tobacco, together with an excellent selection of cold drinks and snacks. The business benefits from an atm machine and offers Paypoint facilities, which are located within the store, as well as the sale of Lotto scratch cards. We are advised that the business now also offers the Lottery and Payzone facilities.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods available, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a vast amount of repeat trade. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the range of convenience lines offered.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving business to the next level, as we believe this business still has huge scope for further development and expansion; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
