A to Z Mini Market occupies substantial ground floor premises and two storey house, ideally located within the Crossland Moor district of Huddersfield in West Yorkshire. The business is surrounded by densely populated residential areas and schools, from which the business derives much of its trade. The very popular convenience store and Post Office also benefits from a high volume of footfall and passing trade, as well on-street parking facilities within the immediate area.

Huddersfield is a large market town and is the largest settlement in the metropolitan borough of Kirklees, West Yorkshire. It is the largest town in the United Kingdom and as of 2011 it had a residential population of 162,949. The town has a large and diverse retail shopping area, enclosed within the town's ring road. Huddersfield has an abundance of Victorian architecture. The most conspicuous landmark is the Victoria Tower on Castle Hill, which was constructed to mark Queen Victoria's 60th Jubilee year.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. The nearest railway station is Lockwood, which is just under one mile away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the A62 being within easy driving distance, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Huddersfield town centre is approximately two miles away and Wakefield is 15 miles away.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very busy Post Office and convenience store in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

The business was originally established by our client in 2006 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement and unfortunate health problems. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 763,500 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 14%.

Our client offers a wide variety of goods and services including newspapers and magazines, fresh fruit and vegetables, greeting cards, convenience items, alcohol, confectionery, stationery, toys, scratch cards and the Lottery, to name a few. Our client also offers a newspaper delivery service with 7 rounds in the morning and 10 rounds in the evening.

The property boasts a spacious sales and display area of 632 square metres and is fitted out to suit the trade. The large serve over counter also offers two Post Office positions, which have proved to be very popular. The Post Office boasts a salary of 57,000 per annum.

The business also comes with a five bedroom, two storey house, which boasts its own entrance, a large lounge/dining room, a kitchen and two bathrooms. The house is in immaculate condition and is decorated to a very high standard.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the very high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to promote the excellent services offered.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and very busy business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
