The M5 provides an easy commute to the city.

Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Richardson's. This long established newsagent was originally founded back in 1878 with our client successfully running the business since inception in 1979.

Revenue is derived from the sale of newspapers/magazines, confectionery, greeting cards, ices, tobacco and stationery. The business reports a fantastic turnover in the region of 413,000 with a gross profit at 25%. The news-sheets and lottery sales generate a steady and regular weekly income.

The newsagents is spacious and well laid out, however we believe we a slight reconfiguration more stock lines could be introduced and a new owner may wish to consider applying for an alcohol license and extend opening hours to generate additional income.
