Hilton Smythe would like to welcome to the market this convenience store. This old established business has been in our clients` ownership for the last 15 years. Only now is the business on the market due to our clients` desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business is open 7 days a week, and according to the 2017 accounts, the store generated a turnover in the region of 331,232 with a gross profit circa of 23.7%. The business sells a wide range of convenience lines, newspapers, groceries, alcohol and cigarettes. The business also provides newspapers to the local Thorpe Hall Caravan Park, generating extra revenue.

The business has an excellent reputation within the area and benefits from a loyal customer base and much repeat trade. We feel there is scope to expand on the range of products available and perhaps extend the opening hours; this would be an ideal husband and wife venture, which would reduce the wages bill. The property is well-presented throughout and is superbly fitted to suit trade. The property boasts a spacious 4 bedroom owners` accommodation on the upper floor. The business provides 4 regular newspaper delivery rounds in the area.

We would highly recommend viewing this profitable concern to fully appreciate the property and business.

The stores are located in the village of Kilham near Driffield, East Riding of Yorkshire.

The property benefits from ample on-street parking and is within a densely populated residential area, therefore benefitting for a high footfall and passing trade. Local amenities within the village include a primary school, garage, 2 public houses and parish church, this is the only shop within a 6 mile radius. More amenities are available in the market town of Driffield, which is 6 miles away, while Bridlington is approximately 10 miles away.

The village is well served by the local bus service with a bus stop directly outside the business, with the nearest train station being in Driffield, the area is also well served by the A-road network with the A614 being just two miles away.
