BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well established and very busy convenience store and Post Office business, which is ideally located within Flimby, Cumbria.

The long established business has been in our clients' careful ownership since 2002, and is only now being offered to the market, due to our clients' desire for a well-deserved retirement. the business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of 1,381,773 per annum, with a good gross profit.

Our clients offer a wide variety of goods, including newspapers and magazines, greeting cards, stationery, convenience items, confectionery, frozen/chilled goods, ice cream, soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, tobacco products the Lottery and Post Office services. To the rear of the main shop is a large warehouse, that has been converted into a pet supplies store.

The property boasts 247 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained, decorated to a very high standard and is extremely well fitted out to suit the trade. To the first floor is a three-bedroom flat, which currently has a sitting tenant paying 65 per week, although a new owner could use the flat as owners' accommodation should they desire.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the excellent goods and service offered. There is also scope to offer newspaper deliveries within the area.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
