Tenure: Leasehold

Clare Food Stores Ltd occupies substantial ground floor premises, ideally located on a busy main road running through the city of Newport, Gwent. The premises are situated in a prime trading location on Commercial Road and is surrounded by a wealth of complimentary shops and businesses, therefore benefitting from a vast amount of footfall and passing trade. The business is surrounded by densely populated residential estates, from which the business derives much of its trade.

Newport is a cathedral and university city in south east Wales. The city is located on the River Usk, close to its confluence with the Severn Valley. As of the 2011 census, Newport is the third largest city in Wales, with a population of 145,736, and an urban population of 306,844.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. Newport Railway Station is approximately one mile away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with the A4042 within easy driving distance, which links to the vast A-road and motorway networks. Cardiff is approximately 11 miles away and Pontypridd is 18 miles away.

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular convenience store in Newport, Gwent. The business was established by our client in 2004 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client`s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 7 days per week and generates a healthy turnover in the region of 1,000,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.
The turnover is generated from the sale of everyday convenience items, household goods, fresh fruit and vegetables, chilled goods, frozen foods, confectionery and tobacco products, to name a few. The business also boasts a Halal butchers to the rear of the shop, which has proved to be very popular. The shop is well-presented throughout and boasts a large sales and display area, with racking and shelving to suit the trade.
The business has an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the stock and services available, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a vast amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours and perhaps introducing new lines, and perhaps applying for an alcohol licence. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already popular and thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
