Profitable Costcutter Store In A Great Location
Hilton Smythe is proud to introduce to the market Alizeh Supermarket. The shop was established in 1985 and has been trading for about 30 years, with our clients taking over the business in 2006 and being well supported by the local community. The convenience store sells affordable products such as sweets, drinks, crisps, groceries, baked goods, alcohol, newspapers and household goods, with stock well-arranged throughout the store. Above the busy shop is a three bedroom flat which is not currently tenanted but could be to generate additional income or equally the flat can be used as owner’s accommodation. This is not included in the price of the rent but is available for £650 PCM if the owner required it. Our client has now decided that he wants to sell the store due to other business commitments that he wishes to fulfil. We believe there is scope for developing the business, perhaps by extending the opening hours or another suggestion is that they could obtain national lottery in the shop and also have a cash machine fitted to increase footfall. I think the new owner of this business would do well getting a popular well known convenience store in a prime tourist location.
We are advised the turnover for the business is around £239,915 per annumWith a gross profit of 13%
The business is run and managed by our client with the help of 2 part time members of staff.
Business opening times- The business is currently open 7 days a week 7:30am-10pm.
