Falcon Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this thriving Convenience Store. It has been under the proud ownership of our clients since 2006 during which time they have made considerable investment in an extensive refurbishment of the premises. It is now reluctantly being placed on the market as the vendor wishes to semi retire. During our clients stewardship the business has built up an excellent reputation for its welcoming atmosphere and friendly service.

Operating from substantial landmark premises of real charm and character, this very well established, family-run concern has become an important focal point of the local community in the course of many years’ successful trading by conducting a useful and popular retail operation of an extensive selection of general and frozen convenience grocery items.

The store also stocks an excellent choice of chilled and dairy products, general household goods, traditional beers, wines and spirits and a range of news, confectionery and tobacco lines, in addition to holding valuable pay zone and national lottery franchises.

College Road Stores is run by our clients. The business is run at a pace to suite the owners and we are advised that it generates a turnover in the region of £180,000 per year with high gross profit margins. There is tremendous potential to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours to include early mornings or expand the range of food to go.
