Newsagents for Sale

Were you ever a paper boy? Do you look back fondly at all the mornings you spent delivering papers in the sun, rain or hail? What if you’re able to expand on that experience and buy your own newsagents business as an adult? 

Newsagents are one of the most popular used businesses to buy – meaning that they’re often a reliable venture for entrepreneurs. That’s because millions of us buy newspapers and magazines, lottery tickets, confectionery, and other necessities from newsagents every day. More convenient than a supermarket, newsagents are the go-to destination for anyone needing to nip out for the paper, a carton of milk or even a bar of chocolate to have on your way to work. They’re always local, open when you need, and are often the heart of small communities. In fact, UK convenience stores generated £40.3 billion a year in sales and account for one-fifth of all grocery sales.

At Hilton Smythe, we believe that buying a business is better than starting one from scratch. We stand by the belief that buying a newsagent that’s already been trading for a few years will mean a lot of the hard work has already been done for you. Buying a used newsagent will guarantee an established customer-base, and free up time for you to specialise your newsagents in any way you like. Maybe this is in the form of your own sandwich counter, gifts, or stationery, stamps and greetings cards? Whatever your goal, we’re confident that our newsagents for sale listings will meet all the necessary criteria for you to make your new business a success.
