Description Bruce & Co. Are delighted to introduce Topshop, a well-run and popular shop located in the heart of Bathgate. The business was started by our client 17 years ago and they have reluctantly placed it on the market due their retirement. The store stocks a selection of convenience/grocery items, alcohol, cigarettes and confectionery. Although trading successful, we believe turnover could be increased with expanding some of the retail lines. Additionally, the business is currently run by staff and if the new owner chooses to owner operate this would undoubtedly increase profit.
Situation The town of Bathgate is experiencing a rise in population with a demand for new residential developments in and around the surrounding area. Other attractions in the town offer an excellent range of shopping facilities and recreational and leisure amenities such as a sports centre, golf courses and nearby country parks etc. Bathgate is within easy reach of the M8 and the main Scottish motorway network.
Building Internal The business premises occupy a purpose built unit stand alone property located within a residential area. The shop floor is well designed with a functional service counter located at the right hand side with spirits and tobacco behind the counter. The shop is arranged with 2 isles which provide ample shelving and display opportunities all around the shop floor along with several refrigeration units. The business also benefits from a store room located in the basemen with staff WC facilities.
Building External The business is straight to street with parking available in nearby streets.
Services The property has all main services connected.
Tenure The current lease has 3 years left but we are advised new owners will be granted a new lease with rent of £5200 pa.
Accounts Full trading figures will be available after a formal viewing has taken place.
