Hilton Smythe are welcoming to the market Much Hoole Village Shop and delicatessen.

A fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to run their own business. This particular shop and deli has a lot to offer, there is plenty of scope to expand even further and increase the good steady turnover the shop already has. The sale also includes a 2 bed self-contained flat which could be used as living accommodation for the buyer or rented out to increase profits.

The shop has been extremely well-established in this location. Our clients took over the shop 10+ years ago and are now wishing to retire.

The current owner has a good working relationship with the locals and is willing to offer a handover period to ensure the continued success of the business. The business has a fantastic reputation from both the shop and the deli side.

At present our client doesn't offer newspaper delivery, offering this service would benefit the business as the locals often ask for this service. Also, advertising the deli on social media and offering a fresh food delivery would boost sales.

The business is available as a Freehold or Leasehold.

Much Hoole is a nice and friendly community, the village hall hosts regular charity events and fairs which attracts a lot of footfall.
