Property description

Blacks Brokers are delighted to bring to the market this leasehold grocers business located in Selby, Yorkshire.

Rk Harris and Sons has been trading at Market Cross Shopping Centre since 2011 and is only being offered for sale due to future retirement plans therefore this has created an exceptional opportunity for a new owner to enjoy the solid trading foundations and push the business forward. The business is currently a family run business that has been operating in the area since 1971 and as such has an outstanding reputation locally.

Selby is situated 14 miles South of the City of York along the course of the River Ouse. Selby is a sizeable town on the main route North from the Midlands. The business is located in the market area of this affluent town and therefore attracts high footfall and passing trade.

Externally, the business has impressive kerb appeal with its strong signage and brand identity. As one would expect from this type of business, great emphasis is placed on the exterior of the building and it benefits from two display areas on this double fronted unit. The rectangle retail space inside is of an ideal size and again is superbly fitted. A stock room is located to the rear of the building with an office space on the first floor. The lease for the shop includes a permit for parking for three vehicles along with a loading bay for easy deliveries. The business operates with eight part time members of staff and is open from 7am to 5pm 6 days a week.

Financially the business delivers impressive weekly takings and high gross profits. Clearly the business benefits from seasonal trading and enjoys plentiful repeat custom. A new owner could certainly add to the turnover by looking to wholesale to local stores and restaurants and also by embracing an online presence to increase brand awareness in the local community.

The business would ideally suit a hands-on owner operator who could enjoy all the benefits of this well-established business whilst also pushing the business forward to increase trade. Early viewings are advised as it is rare that a business of this calibre offering so much potential becomes available on the open market.

Business: £24,995.
