Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this long established newsagents business in Alnwick, Northumberland. The business was established in the 1960's and has been in our clients careful hands since 2009.

The business is only now being offered to the market due to our clients desire to explore other business interest. The business is open 7 days a week and generates a turnover in the region of 273,000 per annum with a gross profit of approximately 16%.

Taylors Newsagency is a popular newsagents business with great repeat business from local residents as well as benefiting from trade from many tourist visiting. The business benefits from being close by to Alnwick Castle and Gardens, which is a popular tourist attraction, the castle was used for the filming of Harry Potter.

The newsagents offers a wide range of different products including a wide variety of magazines and newspapers, cigarettes, tobacco, confectionary items, cold beverages, stationery items, cards and a small range of tourist souvenirs.

We feel the business could possibly increase its turnover by introducing Lottery and Pay Point services, the business could also potentially expand the opening hours. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this well-established business to the next level; therefore, an early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
