Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

DESCRIPTION
This is an exciting opportunity to acquire this traditional butchers which has been under the same ownership since 2007, although it has been trading from the same position for over 40 years. The business benefits from a regular and loyal client base, as well as a master butcher.

The business occupies an excellent trading position, within the centre of the village amongst other independent retailers such as restaurants, newsagents, hair salons, dog groomers, dry cleaners, accountants and a post office.

The business is well renowned and has an excellent local reputation for its free range meats, with the majority sourced locally whenever possible. All sausages are hand made on site using traditional methods, machinery and long standing recipes.

The shop is traditional in design when entering from the street, and benefits from heavy footfall throughout the day due to the high level of commuters using the main line station, which is close by and provides a regular service in to London.

When the business changed ownership in 2007 a refurbishment programme took place, and the business is therefore presented in good condition with traditional meat and cheese display chillers, along with other display cabinets for pre-packed meats, stocks and a selection of table condiments.

ACCOUNTS
Profit and loss accounts to the year end 31.03.15 show an income of 204,760 with an adjusted profit in the region of 17,000 although in our opinion the business would ideally suit an owner operator in order to maximize profits.

TRADING HOURS
Monday - Friday 07:00 - 17:00
Saturday 09:00 - 16:00

STAFF
The business is managed by the owner, along with the help of a full time master butcher and further part time members of staff.

PROPERTY

TRADING AREAS

To the rear of the shop there are two large walk in fridges, a prep area with two butchers blocks and access to the rear garden, which has an undercover area with a walk in fridge and freezer.

RESIDENTIAL ACCOMMODATION
There is no residential accommodation for owners/management available.

TENURE

SUMMARY
