The business is located in the former mill town of Bolton, Greater Manchester.

Brown's is located within a densely populated residential area from which the business derives much of its trade. Occupying a prominent corner position the business is also highly visible to passing trade. The business is located just off the main A58 commuter road and is within walking distance of the very popular Moss Bank Park.

Bolton is around 10 miles from the City of Manchester and boasts excellent public transport links with its own railway station and regular bus network. The area is also served by the M61 and M60 motorways.

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Brown's. This busy convenience store has occupied this prominent trading site for over 90 years with our clients, a husband and wife team successfully running this business since inception in 1990.

In conjunction with the retail of a large variety of every day convenience items, alcohol sales, confectionery, toys, cigarettes and tobacco, additional revenue is derived from the sale of takeaway sandwiches, hot and cold salad boxes, pies and pasties and hot and cold drinks. The business is very well known in the area and benefits from a high amount of trade from the local community and is conveniently positioned in close proximity to the local primary school.

The business currently reports a healthy turnover of circa £55,000 per annum with a gross profit of around 37%. We believe there is huge potential to further revenue, perhaps, by extending the alcohol sales, increasing opening hours or offering further services such as lottery sales or Payzone.

The business is complete with lovely owner's accommodation, ideal perhaps for a family with good schools within walking distance. The living accommodation could easily be reconfigured to extend the shop backwards to provide extra retail space and introduce additional product lines.

Early viewing of this superb business opportunity with spacious living accommodation is highly recommended. With the business genuinely coming to the market as our clients look towards a well-deserved retirement.
