Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of The Pink Shop which is a well-established Convenience and off Licence store with a renowned reputation amongst residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a high turnover local business in an area teeming with customers.
There has been a village shop at this location for almost a hundred years, the current owner has run it as The Pink Shop for the last 18 months or so and the business has been a real labour of love for him, enjoying many new customers and a burgeoning reputation whilst under his ownership.
Alas this nice little business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to the vendors wish to pursue a change of direction, he is keen to see his beloved convenience store pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take it to the next level.
The Pink Shop which can be truly said to be at the heart of the local community, is well stocked and offers a range of products to be sold such as;
- Tobacco and Vaping.
- Crisps and snacks.
- Beers, wines and spirits.
- Soft drinks.
- Ice creams.
- General groceries.
- Household items.
- The business offers a pay point facility and has recently become an agent for Lotto.
Reasons to Buy:
- A well-established business with an enviable reputation and many existing customers.
- Low running costs with inexpensive rent and no business.
- All fixtures and fittings included making this a real Turnkey business opportunity.
- Ideal owner managed or partnership business.
- Current owner happy to offer a handover to ensure the continued success.
- Little or no competition locally.
- Priced to sell.
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
