Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Welford Superstore.
The business genuinely comes to the market as our client is looking to move on. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £230,000per annum as per the 2016 accounts.

Our client offers a wide variety of goods and services including newspapers and magazines, convenience items, confectionery, dairy produce, soft drinks, snacks, alcoholic beverages, greeting cards, stationery, scratch cards, and tobacco products, to name a few.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening longer on Sundays. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods and services offered.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular newsagent, off licence and convenience store, which is ideally located in Leicester. Leicester is a city and unitary authority area in the East Midlands. The city lies on the River Soar, at the edge of the National Forest.

Leicester is a modern city, rich in arts, culture, sports and heritage and boasts something of interest for all ages.
