Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Eggbuckland Stores. The business was originally established in this location in the 1960's and was taken over by our client in 2000. This is a long-established business that has been a great success in this location. The owner is now looking to sell the store, due to the desire to take a well-deserved retirement.

The business runs as a convenience store offering an exceptional range of stock. Products include pet food, household products, confectionery, frozen food, soft drinks, greetings cards, cigarettes and newspapers. The store is also a parcel collection point for DPD and UPS. A great extra service that boosts income.

The business generated a turnover in the region of 274,000 as of the 2015 accounts, with a gross profit of 19%. This is a healthy turnover with scope to further increase this figure. The purchaser should look to extend services to increase custom and sales. We feel with the introduction of the National Lottery and a newspaper delivery round in the local area there could be a significant boost in turnover.

Included in the Freehold sale is a large owner's accommodation, this has two bedrooms and comes ready to move into. The accommodation could be let out if not required by the purchaser, for an extra monthly income.

The store offers its products and services to a large densely populated residential area. Our client sees regular repeat trade and has an excellent reputation within the community. This is a perfect turnkey opportunity that would be ideal for a husband and wife team or partnership. Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to take in the full potential of the trade.
