Property description

Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Hillwood Wines.

There has been a similar business at these premises for nearly 40 years and the current owner has run it successfully and lucratively for the last seven months or so. The business is being sold albeit very reluctantly, so the owner can relocate to Liverpool where he is buying a larger similar business.

Hillwood Wines is a popular community shop and Off Licence selling;
Beers, Ciders, wines and Spirits
Tobacco products
Confectionery
Soft drinks
Crisps and snacks
Bread, milk and dairy products.

The business has lots of regular customers who use the business on a daily basis, many of them known on a first name basis by the current owner who is a well-liked and respected member of the community. The business enjoys good footfall and further benefits from passing trade.

The business was having a Paypoint till and terminal installed at the time of instruction which is likely to increase footfall and spending considerably.

Scope to Improve
Advertising and marketing campaign, perhaps a leaflet drop around the local housing estates.
Maximise the use of social media particularly Facebook and Twitter
Extend the shop… there is a large unused warehouse behind the main shop which is ripe for conversion
Extend the openings hours perhaps opening earlier in the mornings
Explore the feasibility of installing a Lotto terminal
Offer a parcel collection service
Look at becoming an agent for dry cleaning etc

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.

Northfield is a residential area in the outskirts of metropolitan Birmingham and near the border with Worcestershire. It is also a council constituency managed by its own district committee. The constituency includes the wards of Kings Norton, Longbridge, Wesley Castle, West Heath and Turves Green. Northfield stands on either side of the main A38 heading south from the centre of Birmingham to Bromsgrove and onwards all the way to Cornwall

Hillwood Wines occupies a prominent position at the start of a busy Shopping parade and is nicely presented and maintained with clear visible signage. There is free on street parking immediately outside the premises.
