Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Select News. Established in the area in 1970 and purchased by our client in 2015 who has now decided to sell to concentrate on another business project.

The traditional newsagents has been improved and modernised by our client who has introduced more grocery items, confectionery and alcohol sales to the business.

The business is split between £1,800 Oyster cards sales, £2,000-2,500 Lottery sales, retail sales including cigarettes, groceries, drinks and confectionery, alcohol, magazines, newspapers, stationery, traditional sweets, household goods, greeting cards, toys, novelty goods and special items averaging around £2,000 per week.

Newspaper bill is average £350-£400 per week and the mobile phone counter brings in between £7000-8000 annually through rent.

The shop also rents a space to the front left side of the unit to a mobile repair business which attracts additional footfall.

Potential lies in increasing the additional add on sales from the heavy footfall of early morning and late evening commuters, adding additional refrigeration and increasing the alcohol range could quickly increase current weekly retail sales levels.

The large 3 storey property also comes with a spacious 3 bed maisonette to the first and second floor with own separate entrance which can either be used for either new owner’s accommodation or rented out to achieve a rental income of around £22,000-25,000 per annum.

Agreed handover offered.

The business reports turnover in the region of £260,000 per year, with a gross profit of circa 23%.
