BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Mill Street News, a well established newsagents servicing the local community.

Run by the current owner for the last four and half years and sadly offered for sale due to our client moving onto new ventures. The newsagents currently sells; confectionary, soft drinks, tobacco, greeting cards, magazines, newspapers and a small line of grocery essentials. The business benefits from offering a newspaper delivery service in the area.

There is huge potential to increase turnover if the business expands its line of convenience items or applies for the appropriate licence to retail alcohol which will inevitably increase footfall and revenue.

The business also has a payzone, and profits could be increased with the introduction of lottery sales.
