Convenience Store/Post Office/Newsagents in Picturesque Location
Castle Douglas, Dumfries and Galloway
Ref: 13356 A
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Gatehouse Store Ltd. This multi-facet business was originally founded in 2010 and offers a monopoly trading position within this charming town, being very well supported by local residents and visitors to the area.The premise is a great size with revenue derived from a well-stocked convenience store including a deli serving fresh food, sandwiches and hot drinks, off licence, newsagents and post office, a later addition to the business in 2015. The store is well-presented with stock clearly displayed throughout.We believe the business could further income by offering Lotto sales and perhaps extending the existing newspaper delivery round in the area.In addition, above the store is a large 3 bedroom flat, currently with a sitting tenant on 6 months terms. Early viewing of this established business in this desirable location is highly recommended, with the business genuinely coming to the market due to our client’s other business interests, but would be happy to stay on as a member of staff if a new owner requires.
Please contact Hilton Smythe for further financial information.
The business is owner run and managed with the assistance of 4 members of staff.
