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.

Paper Rack convenience store is a well-run and popular local business located on the busy Albert Drive (G41) within the city of Glasgow.

The business has been in operation by the current owners for many years and is now reluctantly on the market due to family circumstance. The store stocks a selection of convenience items, cigarettes, confectionary, newspapers, magazines, stationary, greetings cards and household items.

There is scope to increase turnover with additional opening hours and expanding some of the retail lines currently stocked to include Lottery, pay point etc & 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.
