Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Let’s Go Express. This convenience store was established by our client in 2011. The owner now looks to sell the store, due to the desire to focus on another shop.
The business runs as a corner shop and off licence, stocking an exceptional range of produce. This includes tobacco, confectionery, beers, wines, spirits, household products, frozen foods and much more. The business also offer the National Lottery, this generates an extra annual income.
Let’s Go Express generated an advised turnover of £250,000 as of the 2016 accounts, with a gross profit of 22%. Although, this is a healthy turnover, we feel there is scope to boost this figure. The purchaser could look to introduce other services such as Payzone, cash point and newspaper deliveries. Extending opening hours should also be considered.
The property is well-suited to the trade and has an A2 licence. This is a fantastic turnkey opportunity that would be ideal for a husband and wife team or partnership. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
