Property Listing Details


Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this well priced and popular community store The Hollies Variety Store; easily managed from well fitted and presented parade premises. It is situated opposite the entrance to a Sainsburys supermarket so has a good footfall, a wonderful lifestyle business, with excellent year-round regular and passing trade and scope for retail expansion and extended hours.

The shop has been run by the current owner for 5 years, who is now looking to pursue other business interests abroad.

The shop is very much as it says, a discount variety store offering an amazing range of products to include cards, kitchenware, tupperware, Christmas decorations, stationary, hardware including screws/nails etc, garden accessories, wool, rugs, pet supplies, storage boxes, toiletries and much more.

The owner informs me that they could also offer food supplies, but choose not to at present; this should be something the purchaser considers. Also, the rear store could easily be used for things like paint supplies etc.

The potential product list is endless offering great future development.

The Hollies Variety Store is situated on a shopping parade in the centre of Midsomer Norton opposite a Sainsbury’s store which offers free parking and a busy footfall.

Midsomer Norton is a town near the Mendip Hills in Bath and North-East Somerset, 10 miles south-west of Bath, 10 miles north-east of Wells, 10 miles north-west of Frome and 16 miles south-east of Bristol. It has a population of 10,997.

An easily managed premise covering around 88 sqm with the main shop area, large rear store room, office and WC.

The main shop offers customer counter and till, various shelving, racking and display items.

Financial Profile

According to the voa website the current rateable value is £10,750; however, the owners inform me that they benefit from small business rate relief.
