Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this well priced Newsagents/convenience store easily managed from well fitted premises of approximately 53 sqm, offering a wide range of products to Include newspapers, lottery, tobacco, cards and stationary, sweets, vapes and much more. It is situated in a busy location in the new modern high street with much passing trade and is the only store of this type in this location so offers tremendous potential.
We believe from the owner that the shop turns over around £18,000 per week and a has a higher than normal profit margin compared to normal newsagents because of its exclusivity, being on its own with no direct competition. We are informed the business reports 100% profit on sweets, 200% on vapes, 20% on tobacco and up to 60% on alcohol.
There main sales come from Tobacco £6,000 per week, Lottery £1600 per week, Alcohol £1,000 per week, news £1100 per week, drinks £1500 per week, vapes £700 per week and sweets £400 per week. They also carry out a milk and paper round to 52 different businesses in the locality, which is very profitable.
There are still improvements that could be made to take the shop to the next level, to include longer opening hours, more deliveries and even to include a post office if wanted.
We are advised by the owners that they have been approached previously regarding this, but decided against it because they felt it would make them too busy.
An internal inspection is very highly recommended to appreciate the potential and position on offer.
The business is currently run by the owners.
