Description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this very well-established off license and general store.

The shop itself has been run by the current owners for around 20 years now and they are looking towards a well-earned retirement, due to ill health.

They have a diverse range of products to include, newspapers, tobacco, sweets and groceries, national lottery, together with sundry items to include greeting cards, photocopying, hardware and much more.

We believe from the owners that the current shop takings are £12/14,000 per month, however this could be higher, but with ill health they have been restricted.

The takings included approx. £300 per week for alcohol sales, £1800 per week for tobacco and £400 per week for lottery. They also have Pay Zone card machine and raise £700 pcm for the 2 bedroom flat above.

With longer hours including opening on a Sunday and making full use of the alcohol license which is until 11pm, together with more advertising and a wider product range this shop could easily be taken to the next level.

There is an extensive inventory of fixtures and fittings to include fridges, shelving and racking, serving counter and till.

Hilton Smythe recommend early viewing as this is a must-have opportunity.

Location
Arti Off License is situated only half a mile from the centre of the City of Cardiff in a busy retail and residential area, being within 5 minutes’ walk of the Castle and centre.

Cardiff is the capital and largest city in Wales and the eleventh-largest city in United Kingdom. The city is the country's chief commercial centre, the base for most national cultural and sporting institutions, the Welsh national media, and the seat of the National Assembly for Wales.

The unitary authority area's mid-2011 population was estimated to be 346,100, while the population of the Larger Urban Zone was estimated at 861,400 in 2009.

Cardiff is also a significant tourist centre and the most popular visitor destination in Wales with 18.3 million visitors in 2010. In 2011, Cardiff was ranked sixth in the world in National Geographic's alternative tourist destinations.

Access is easily gained to all surrounding areas via the M4 motorway.

Premises
These are easily managed premises covering approximately 77 sqm on the ground floor, with main shop area, rear store/kitchen, external WC, shed for storage and parking for 4/5 vehicles/yard with rear access.

Separate access from the front or rear leads to a large fully self-contained 2 double bedroom flat with lounge, kitchen and bathroom on the first floor and then 2 good sized bedrooms on the second floor.

The flat has gas central heating and UPVC double glazing. The shop offers CCTV with security alarm and comes with ice cream fridge, 2 drinks fridges, 1 snack fridge, a photocopying machine, various shelving and racking, till and counter.

An internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate what’s on offer.
