Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a long established and well known bakers and confectioners, which is located in the popular town of Leigh, Greater Manchester.

R E & J Parker occupies a prominent trading position on a busy main commuter route close to the town centre and within a densely populated area of residential and commercial dwellings, with ample parking in the vicinity. As you would expect, the area is a hive of activity throughout the day, attracting high levels of regular repeat and passing trade.

R E & J Parker has been successfully operating by the present owners since 1978 and during that time the business has acquired a truly enviable reputation throughout the town, boasting an extensive and loyal customer base including a number of valuable wholesale clients.

The business operates from a highly visible single fronted mid terraced property, providing deceptively spacious ground floor business accommodation with potential living quarters to the first floor. The business is well equipped with a comprehensive range of catering equipment which has been well maintained.

R E & J Parker is a thriving and highly profitable business, yet offers genuine scope for future growth and development. With this in mind, the business represents an ideal purchase for an ambitious and energetic hands on family unit, who can exploit the true potential which will naturally increase the weekly sales, whilst ultimately enhancing overall profitability.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase such a well established business, which is only now being offered for sale due to retirement and viewing is therefore recommended to avoid disappointment.

Currently weekly shop sales average 3,000 approximately.

Current records and accounts can be inspected when viewing.

The single fronted mid terraced property offers deceptively spacious and versatile accommodation.

The residential accommodation is currently vacant, however there are 3 rooms and a bathroom located on the first floor, which could provide comfortable living space subject to a scheme of refurbishment and updating.

We are advised that the property is freehold.

We have been unable to check this information and advise prospective purchasers to consult their own solicitor for verification.
