Description Bruce and Co. Are pleased to introduce to the market this popular convenience store that has been established for many years and has been in the careful hands of our clients for over 3 years. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to ill health. Since taking ownership of the business, our clients have continually developed and improved the business by introducing new lines of retail items which have enhanced the business massively; this shows in the year on year increase in turnover and profitability.
The business enjoys a strong reputation and is heavily relied upon within the local community and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. In addition to support from local residents, the business benefits massively from its location on the main street through the town and its position opposite the train station which contributes to the level of custom received daily.
Situation The business is conveniently situated in the heart of Gourock on the main shopping street through the town. It benefits hugely from its location directly opposite the train station and is ideally positioned for all amenities. Gourock enjoys a high volume of tourists each year who are drawn to the town by its picturesque buildings and coastal location. The town is an excellent base for exploring this region of Scotland and is equally as convenient for residents as it provides an ideal base for commuting to nearby Greenock and Glasgow City Centre. We have also been informed that work is due to begin on the Gourock Regeneration project which will undoubtedly attract more visitors once completed.
