Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Granvilles Off Licence. The business was originally established in the 1980's. Our client first took over the store in 2011 and has run the store to a high standard.

The business currently runs as on off licence selling a great range of quality products. Stock includes wines from around the world, spirits, cold beers and ciders. The store also sells local ales which are brewed in Cumbria.

The off licence generates a healthy turnover of around 248,000 per annum with a gross profit of 17%. The business receives a generous amount of repeat loyal trade from the locals. A loyalty scheme would be a great way of boosting the already enviable customer base.

The store offers gift wrapping, wicker baskets and wooden wine boxes. These services are perfect for special occasions and add that special touch that other off licences don't offer. The new owner should continue this service as it is a great extra. The owner could also look to offer a delivery service, whether it be for the special occasion presents or for larger orders.

This is a well-presented business that comes fully fitted. The store is located in the heart of the town and is well known amongst the locals. The store would make a perfect bolt-on business or first time purchase. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing of this fantastic business to any purchaser looking for this type of business.
