DESCRIPTION
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a long established and well known convenience store and sandwich bar, which is situated in the popular Weston Point district of Runcorn, Cheshire.

J J Robinson occupies a prime trading position fronting a busy main road, within a densely populated residential area with a large number of industrial and commercial premises in the surrounding vicinity. Occupying such an accessible location, the business attracts high levels of regular, local and passing trade throughout the day.

Having been established by the present family back in 1919, this well known and heavily relied upon business has forged strong relationships with the local community and therefore boasts an extensive and loyal customer base.

J J Robinson operates from a highly visible and imposing detached premises, which were formally a number of dwellings offering an excellent blend of unusually spacious retail and self contained living accommodation.

The business retails a wide range of lines including confectionery, tobacco products, soft drinks, freshly made sandwiches, pies, jacket potato's, cooked meats, dairy products, frozen foods and grocery items, as well as a small selection of wines, beers and spirits.

J J Robinson is a successful and lucrative business, yet operates very short hours, just 5.5 days per week only and therefore offers fantastic scope for future growth and improvement. With this in mind, the business represents an ideal purchase for an ambitious family unit, who can exploit the true potential to introduce a much wider range of stock lines, whilst significantly extending the opening times until later into the evening and commence Sunday trading.

These enhancements will undoubtedly increase the weekly sales, whilst ultimately enhancing the overall profitability.

Only now being offered for sale due to retirement, a viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
