Kingston upon Thames is an ancient market town where Saxon kings were crowned. Central Kingston is a busy predominantly retail centre, which is just five minutes' away, and possesses a small number of commercial offices and civic buildings. The town has many pubs and restaurants and is a very popular place in which to live and work, due to its close proximity to London.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. The nearest railway station is Kingston, which is just over 1 mile away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the A240 being within easy driving distance, which links to the national A-road and motorway networks. Twickenham is just under 5 miles away and the City of London is 13 miles away.

BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy off licence business, ideally located in Kingston upon Thames, Greater London.

The business was established by our clients in 1978 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients' desire to take a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 460,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 22%

Our clients' offer a wide range of alcoholic beverages, as well as soft drinks, crisps, snacks and sweets, to name a few. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

The premises have been fitted to a high standard and boast a two-bedroom flat to the first floor, which could be used as owners' accommodation or let out to generate further income. The premises further benefits from a large kitchen area to the rear of the store and a large cellar.

We feel the turnover could be further increased by extending the range of products available to include groceries. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the business and the excellent services offered.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this busy and profitable business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
