Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Haverigg Gift Shop trading under the nationally recognised Londis brand. Established back in the 1930’s this busy convenience store has been run by our clients, a successful husband and wife team since 1988 and are now looking towards a well-deserved retirement. The business reports a fantastic turnover of circa £610,000 with gross profit at 17.5% and is very well supported by the local community. The store is generous in size and well presented with products clearly displayed throughout. With the additional benefit of a baking room which is used for baking produce to be sold in-store. We believe the business could further increase turnover by extending opening hours later into the evenings. Early viewing of this long established thriving concern is highly recommended.
The business is owner run and managed with the assistance of 3 members of staff.
