Do you want to sell your newsagents or convenience store?

There are thousands of local shops and newsagents across the UK, and we help them to change hands regularly. If you need a trusted business broker to help you find your ideal buyer, Hilton Smythe is the nation’s number one for good reason.

Why sell now?

There are many different reasons why business owners decide to put their business on the market. Running a newsagents requires a lot of time investment, and it’s not always possible to give a business the time it requires to be successful. For example, if a business owner is suffering from poor health or needs to look after a family member, they may have to sacrifice the business.

One of the most popular reasons for selling up is retirement. You’ve probably worked long hours over a number of years, so you’ve earned yourself a nice long retirement! If the business owner can’t pass the business on to a family member or they want to sell the business to fund their retirement, then it’s important to choose a good time to sell to get the most value.

You’ve done the years of hard work building a successful business – now let us take care of selling it for you. We’ll do all the leg work to find a suitable buyer and explain everything you need to know about the business transfer.

Access to thousands of buyers

When choosing a business broker it’s important to consider how many registered buyers they have to advertise to – and if they would be interested in buying a small newsagents like yours. At Hilton Smythe we have a huge database of people looking to buy a business like yours, but we also advertise commercial properties on over 30 marketing platforms to further extend our reach.
