BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established newsagent and convenience store in Freckleton, Lancashire.

The business was established over 40 years ago and has been in our client`s careful ownership for the past 6 years. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client`s wish for a well-earned retirement. The business is open 7 days per week and generates an excellent turnover and gross profit. The turnover is generated from the sale of newspapers and magazines, as well as general grocery items, tobacco products, fresh fruit and vegetables and confectionery. The business also benefits from a Health Lottery terminal and from the sale of Lotto scratch cards. The premises has a premise licence.

The newsagents also offer newspaper rounds with 4 x evening rounds, 10 morning rounds and 11 Sunday morning rounds, delivering over 250 newspapers per day. The business has a very loyal customer base and benefits from a vast amount of repeat trade. We feel the turnover could be increased by extending the opening hours, as well as extending the range of general groceries available.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving and profitable business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
