Fully Stocked Convenience Store Close To Town Centre
Wigan, Greater Manchester
Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market Discount Booze a well-established business. Our client took over the store 5 years ago, and it has been a great success. We are advised the turnover for the business is around £165,000 per annum. This is a fantastic turnover, however we do believe this could be increased by the new owner. Our client currently employs a full time manager with a wage bill of £18,000 per annum. This opportunity would suit a husband and wife team, with an immediate saving on the wage bill. The new owner could look into opening the business earlier and also by taking advantage of the 11pm licence. We believe that the business could also be turned into a full off licence, the property originally traded as a Threashers wine shop; this could easily be looked into. The main source of income is derived from the sales of wines, spirits, beers and cigarettes this accounts for 70% of turnover. Proof of how well the change to off licence could be. Our client is now looking to sell the business due to other business interests. We are advised that the property received a refit around 4 years ago this included, suspended ceiling with air conditioning, shelving, new flooring, refrigerating equipment also recently an energy saving lighting system was installed. This is the perfect turnkey opportunity for anyone looking to run a newsagents or off licence. We highly advise early viewing for this highly profitable and attractive business in such a fantastic location.
