OFFERS INVITED- This is an exciting opportunity to purchase a well established and a well known cash and carry situated in Surrey. The business occupies a prominent trading position within a densely populated residential area of Croydon.

The area is subsequently a hive of activity throughout the day with continual footfall and activity. This ensures the business attracts high levels of regular local and passing trade at all times for both wholesale and public sales.

The business has been trading from the same location for many years and has a strong relationship with the community. The business has an enviable reputation and an extensive and loyal customer base built up by our client since the business was purchased back in 2010.

The business operates from highly visible and imposing premises with a trading area approaching 4700sq ft (STS).

The store retails an extensive range of soft drinks, confectionery, newspaper and magazine titles, dairy products, frozen and convenience foods plus an excellent selection of fresh fruit and vegetables, with additional services such as Oyster top ups.

Jhelum was re-fitted by our client back in 2012 and now benefits from excellent fixtures and fittings along with modern, energy efficient fridges and freezers.

Jhelum is a thriving and highly lucrative business yet still offers terrific scope for future growth and improvement with the introduction of alcohol sales and would therefore ideally suit an energetic family unit who can develop the business to its true potential which will undoubtedly increase the weekly sales whilst ultimately enhancing overall profitability.

To fully appreciate this superb business opportunity, viewing is highly recommended.
