Full description

Tenure: Freehold


A superb opportunity to acquire a well established community store which has had investment in recent years and offers good existing profit and genuine scope for growth with the introduction of new lines and offers such as food to go.

A prospective purchaser may also look to review the current facia branding in light of current shifts in the wholesale supply market. For family buyers there is a duplex flat above offering 4/5 bedroom accommodation, which could also be let independently as it has a separate entrance.


The store is situated on Southella Way, approximately five miles to the west of Hull city centre, amongst surrounding residential housing and just off the main Beverley Road roundabout which gives it good access to the sought after suburbs of Kirk Ella, Anlaby & Willerby. The location is ideal for families with an excellent range of schools available for all age ranges.

The Opportunity

Having owned and operated the store, and lived above, for over 20 years our clients', a husband and wife team, have decided to sell in order to pursue a new career path. The established business is located in a well regarded Hull suburban location and there are a number of new housing projects in the area including the erection of 209 new houses on the site of the former Wolfreton Secondary School. As well as a good range of traditional convenience goods the site offers full Lottery, PayZone services and Hermes delivery services. An unused area to the rear of the store would make an excellent preparation area if the prospective purchaser wished to introduce a food to go offer.


The store is run by one of the owner's covering 30 hours per week. There is a full time member of staff covering 30 hours per week and five part time staff covering around 60 paid hours. TUPE regulations apply to the transfer of staff.
