Business History
Preferred Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this newsagent and off licence, which was established in the 1930s and which has been in our clients' careful hands since 2004. The newsagent is only now being offered to the market due to our clients' wish to retire. The business trades 7 days a week and generates a turnover in the region of 778,000 per annum with a gross profit of 22.14%. Wilsons Newsagent offers an extensive range of general CTN lines, convenience lines, alcohol, groceries, pet food and greeting cards, along with Paypoint facilities and the Lottery. We feel the turnover could be further increased by extending the range of products, such as hot and cold snacks and also sandwiches. There is scope to open all day on Sundays, as the store is currently only open till 2pm. The store enjoys much repeat trade from the local community. The property has been fitted to a high standard and well-maintained throughout. The premises boast self-contained 2-bedroom owners' accommodation to the first floor with lounge, kitchen and bathroom. The 2-bedroom flat could be let to generate an additional income. We feel this represents an ideal opportunity to acquire an already busy newsagents with huge scope for future growth. Early negotiations with Preferred Commercial must come highly recommended.
