Our clients inform us that annual turnover currently runs at 300,000 which is derived from the sale of a wide range of products/ services such as food, drinks, magazines, the national lottery, paper deliveries and much more. Our clients advise that there are 20 morning paper rounds with circa 650 customers.
The business has been run at a pace to suit our clients lifestyle meaning that there is scope for a future purchaser to further develop the business by introducing longer opening hours and by obtaining an alcohol licence.
