Property description

Blacks Brokers are delighted to bring to the market this long established, profitable newsagents in Stockport.

John’s Newsagents has been trading from this Wellington Road South location since 1987, with a business of a similar nature within these premises for over 50 years. The business is very much part of the local community, close to a large residential area and benefiting from a main road location it also attracts much passing trade. Offered for sale now in order for our client to enjoy retirement, we offer this rare opportunity to acquire this busy newsagents in a wonderful location in the town centre.

Wellington Road South is the main route in and out of the town centre, with good access to Stockport Train Station and Bus Station. The business is positioned well within a busy parade of shops and other businesses and is opposite a busy McDonalds. The shop is well branded with the “My Store” logos and orange signage and has a good sized glass frontage. Inside, the large front of house is well stocked and has display fridges, shelving, card stands and CCTV fitted. On the first floor of the premises is a well maintained and well-presented living accommodation, made up of a bathroom, lounge, fitted kitchen and 2 bedrooms.

This business is located approximately 200 metres from the New Stockport Exchange which is a huge £145 million investment currently under construction. At a fraction of the cost, you could benefit hugely from this dynamic new development which includes a newly-built hotel, offices and infrastructure as well as benefiting from the existing commuter footfall to and from the train station and the town centre.

The business is owner run and managed with the help of one staff member

To summarise, this business offers an extremely solid trading foundation with a further opportunity to develop the business investment; with generous owner’s accommodation, it is ideal for both a first-time buyer or an experienced owner. Takings are between £5,000 and £6,000 per week and profits are healthy, yet there is huge scope for expansion into alcohol sales and changes in opening times and days, with late night opening in demand in this area. The business also has great potential to be turned into a convenience store. We suggest early viewings on this business, call us now to book your appointment. Early completion is highly anticipated.

Business: £49,950.
