DESCRIPTION
This is a rare and unique opportunity to purchase a charming village store which is situated in the semi rural village of Hatfield Woodhouse, approximately 7 miles from Doncaster in South Yorkshire.

Woodhouse Stores Limited occupies a prime trading position with no direct competition on the main (A614) at the heart of the sought after village with a substantial number of quality residential dwellings in the locality and is within easy reach of both the (M18) and (M180) motorways. As you would expect occupying such an accessible position, the business attracts high levels of regular local and passing trade throughout the day.

Having been under present family ownership for over 20 years, this well known business has forged strong relationships with the surrounding community and therefore enjoys an extensive and loyal customer base.

Woodhouse Stores Limited operates from a highly visible and imposing double fronted detached period property providing a deceptively spacious ground floor retail space and delightful family living accommodation, which is beautifully presented oozing charm and character.

The sales area is fitted to a high standard with a good range of quality fixtures and fitments, creating a bright and welcoming environment.

The business retails a range of newspaper and magazine titles, confectionery, tobacco products, soft drinks, sandwiches, greetings cards, a small selection of household goods as well as also offering the national lottery.

Woodhouse Stores Limited is a thriving and highly lucrative business which is predominantly operated by staff and trades on limited hours. With this in mind, the business represents a fabulous acquisition for an ambitious family who can introduce a much wider range of stock lines to include alcohol (subject to an alcohol lisence being granted) with the opportunity to significantly extend the opening times.

These enhancements would naturally increase the already impressive trading figures, whilst enabling additional overheads and staffing levels to be kept to a minimum therefore ultimately enhancing the overall profitability.

This first class business is only now being offered for sale due to retirement and a viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
