Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe are delighted to bring to the market a fantastic opportunity to purchase (on a leasehold basis) this busy newsagents/convenience store with fantastic potential.

Woodend Convenience Store Is a well-run and popular business. The business has been in operation by the current owners for 10 years and is now reluctantly on the market as our client looks to retire.

The store stocks a selection of convenience items, cigarettes, alcohol, confectionary, Lottery and Pay Zone.

There is scope to increase turnover with additional opening hours and expanding some of the retail lines currently stocked and perhaps a modest refurbishment to extend the internal shop area.

The premises are in good general condition and well maintained throughout, we feel that this is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this popular business to the next level. Early viewing highly recommended.

Location
Woodend Convenience Store occupies a single fronted ground floor retail premises situated in a small retail parade on Rousay Drive, Aberdeen.

The business occupies a highly visible trading position set amongst other complementary independent businesses within a densely populated residential area, resulting in a high volume of footfall and passing trade. The area is well serviced by the public transport system with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the business.

Aberdeen is a port city and the uk’s oil capital and is found in the northeast of Scotland, where the Dee and Don rivers meet the North Sea. With an offshore petroleum industry, the city is home to an international population. It's also known as the ‘Granite City’ for its many enduring grey-stone buildings. The 19th-century Marischal College is typical – a monumental Victorian landmark that’s now headquarters of the City Council.

The city benefits from excellent travel links to all parts of the UK and further afield due to rail links and the international airport situated in Dyce on the outskirts of the city.
