Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this very well-established convenience/discount food store Gadlys Discount Food Store (Premier). The shop itself has been run by the current owners for more than 30 years; they are now looking towards a well-earned retirement.

The store sells a diverse range of products to include newspapers, tobacco, sweets and groceries, national lottery, together with sundry items to include a cash machine, greeting cards and more.

We believe from the owners that the current shop takings are £8,000 - £9,000 per week and include approximately £1,000 per week for alcohol sales, £2,000 per week for tobacco, £1,000 per week for lottery, £400 per week for newspapers and around £100 per month for the cash machine.

There is an extensive inventory of fixtures and fittings to include fridges, freezers, shelving and racking, serving counter and till.

The accounting information shows a turnover of £446,140 for 2017 with a gross profit of 12%.
According to the VOA website the current rateable value is £8,000; however, the owners inform me that they benefit from small business rate relief so only pay £709.90 per annum on rates.

The business is currently run by the owners and other family members.

Monday & Saturday: 7.00 a.m. - 8.00 p.m.
Sunday: 7.00 a.m. - 7.00 p.m.
