Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of Perthcelyn Food Market which is a well established off licence and convenience store with a renowned reputation amongst local residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a high turnover local business in an area teeming with customers.
There has been a convenience store at this site for many years. The current owners (a husband and wife team) have run it as Perthcelyn Food Market for the last 12 years or so and the business has been a real labour of love for them accruing many regular customers and a glowing reputation.
The business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with heavy hearts only due to the owners desire to pursue a change of direction and relocate. The vendors are keen to see their beloved off licence and convenience store passed to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner(s) who can take this already thriving business to the next level.
