This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a long established and well known newsagents/off licence situated in the popular Lincolnshire town of Scunthorpe.

Bellingham Stores occupies a prominent trading position on a busy parade of shops at the heart of a densely populated residential area, with no direct competition ensuring the business attracts high levels of regular local and passing trade throughout the day.

Having successfully operated in the locality for many years, this heavily relied upon business has forged strong relationships with the community and therefore boasts an extensive and loyal customer base.

Bellingham Stores operates from a highly visible, double fronted shop premises providing a versatile ground floor lock up retail space, which is neatly fitted with a good selection of fixtures and fittings.

Bellingham Stores retails a range of newspaper and magazine titles, tobacco products, confectionery, soft drinks, convenience and alcohol lines, as well as also offering Paypoint and an internal atm.

Bellingham Stores is a successful and lucrative business, yet currently only accepts cash payments and still offers genuine scope for future growth and improvement.

The business represents an excellent investment for an ambitious family unit who can introduce card payments, a wider range of stock lines such as dairy products, fresh foods etc, with the opportunity to extend the trading hours to capitalise on the off licence of the business. These enhancements will naturally increase the weekly sales, whilst ultimately enhancing overall profitability.
