Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular convenience store and newsagent business, which is located in a prime trading location in Coppull, near Chorley in Lancashire.

The business was originally established by our clients in 1980 and was extended in 1987. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients' desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates an excellent turnover and gross profit.

Our clients offer a wide variety of goods including newspapers and magazines, beers, wines and spirits, retro sweets and confectionery, toys, books, hot and cold beverages, dairy produce, frozen foods, greeting cards, fruit & vegetables and general groceries. The premises boast an impressive 252 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and decorated to a very high standard throughout.

The large premises were originally two properties, which have been converted to form a large and spacious shop and extensive family living accommodation. The ground floor offers a spacious retail area to the front with a large serve over counter. To the rear is a lounge area, a fully equipped kitchen, a large office/dining room and a store room. The first floor offers three bedrooms and a bathroom, as well as a self-contained flat with its own access which could generate an extra income of 400 per calendar month. The second floor is the converted attic, which comprises two bedrooms, a lounge/office area and a dressing room.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the very high quality of the goods and service 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 extending the opening hours, as at present the business closes for lunch and is only open half day on Sunday. A new owner could also offer newspaper deliveries or rent out the self-contained flat, which could generate an income of 400 per month.

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