BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe are proud to present to the market Henry's Discount Liquor Store.

The well-known off licence has been an established business since the 1960's and our client has owned the business since 2008 but now has reluctantly decided to sell due to health reasons. The business currently sells products such as alcohol, confectionary and cigarettes. Our client feels the right new owner could take this already thriving, popular business to the next level and help it reach its full potential.

The business is currently turning over a figure of 276,000 per annum with a gross profit circa of 20%, although we agree this is an excellent figure, we feel there is a scope to improve it by possibly adding the lottery to increase the turnover figure, fit a paypoint machine externally and introduce a home delivery service of alcohol to residents in the local area.

The off licence benefits highly from the locals and passing trade in the area. The business is regularly getting repeat trade and could benefit from a social media page just to keep customers and locals up to date on new products, news in the area and opening hours.

We feel an early viewing on this business would be highly beneficial to avoid disappointment.
