Business
Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market the Londis Convenience Store, Woking.

The store was established by our client in 2011, who is now selling the business to retire.

The store is extremely well organised and equipped, offering a wide selection of

• Groceries
• Household goods
• Confectionery
• Hot and cold drinks
• Alcohol
• Stationery
• Greeting cards
• Newspapers
• Magazines
• Frozen food
• Deluxe range of ready meals
• Pharmacy items
• Lottery
• Cigarettes
• Ice cream
• ATM machine
• Sandwiches and freshly baked bakery products

Being a part of the Londis franchise group allows the business to offer a much larger range compared to a normal convenience store and the week special offers attracts a loyal base of local customers. Our client advises the business attracts local residents, school children and young families, passing trade including work and builders.

Our client and his family are well known within the area for offering excellent customer service and often order new lines on request, to ensure consistent repeat trade.

The business benefits from a 5-star Hygiene rating and attention to standards have resulted in outstanding feedback from both the Londis group and local council.

Currently run to suit our client, the business still offers any new owner the opportunity to grow current sales. A new owner may look to extend the current opening hours, add a local Post Office counter, offer local deliveries, increase the range of food to takeaway, add more fresh meat products, flowers and fresh fruit/veg lines.

The business is impeccably presented with excellent assets and storage facilities.

Hilton Smythe advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
