Full description

Davidson Cash & Carry is contained within two adjoining units, forming part of a terrace of three properties, and dating from around the 1960s. Both pedestrian and vehicle access to the property is afforded from the front elevation with separate access and egress to this elevation. There is also a steel roller shutter door allowing vehicle access, this having an opening height of around 3.65 m. (12 ft.). There is a car park/yard area to the front of the property.

Internally, the property provides office and staff/support accommodation to the gable elevation with the main area providing an open plan cash & carry. The office and staff/support accommodation provides a combination of private and general office areas together with a series of stores, used mostly for freezer storage. Also within this area of the property are separate male and female staff toilets. To the front of this section is the main cash desk.

The cash and carry area is open plan with a loading bay towards the front, this linking with the main vehicle access door.

Business

Davidson Cash & Carry was established in 1965 and has been family owned and operated since, operating from the current premises for over 20 years.

Opening hours are currently 8 am - 5 pm Monday to Friday and 8 am - 11 am at weekends.

Our client operates the business with a pool of 8 staff, 6 of which are full time and includes two delivery drivers.

Income is circa 60% shop sales and 40% deliveries and products available include confectionary, soft drinks, alcohol and cigarettes. There is a good mix of sales and our client is part of the Today's buying group for price matching. Various supply contracts are enjoyed to include schools, leisure complexes, shops and pubs.

The business is also a one stop shop for food and ice cream vans with a range of frozen food, gas, slush mix, ice cream, etc.

Our client is generally supplied directly from the manufacturers and ordering, etc is all undertaken via email.

Financial documentation will be provided to interested parties after viewing and confirmation of interest. Income for the year ended 30 April 2015 was 6,183,863, net of VAT. This is lower than sales generated in recent years and primarily due to a fall in cigarette sales, however, this has had little impact upon the profit levels achieved.
