Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this popular newsagent and convenience store business, which is ideally located within the town of Dronfield, Derbyshire. The business was established by our client in 2006 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for semi-retirement. The business currently operates 6½ days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £572,000as per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 21%. Our client offers a wide variety of goods including newspapers and magazines, greeting cards, confectionery, convenience items, frozen goods, dairy produce, soft drinks, alcohol and tobacco products, to name a few, as well as being a dry cleaning agent. The property boasts approximately 56 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and fitted out to suit the trade. The shop was completely re-fitted throughout in 2013. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by opening longer on Sundays. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent goods and services offered. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team, to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The business is owner run and managed with 3 x part time staff members and 2 x newspaper delivery persons.
The business is open: Monday – Saturday: 5.00am – 8.00pmSunday: 5.00am – 1.00pm
