Full description

Tenure: Leasehold


A purpose built, single storey lock up unit located in a terrace of commercial units hosting neighbouring businesses.

Pavement fronted, there is ample, free one hour parking to the front of the store and throughout the town centre.


Acquired by our client in early 2016 from the Co-Operative group, this town centre unit is situated in the busy town of Conisbrough which lies approximately at the midpoint between Doncaster and Rotherham along the A630.

Conisbrough is within the Metropolitan Borough of Doncaster and lies approximately six miles to the South West of Doncaster City centre.

Internal Details

The store is rectangular in shape, with two central gondolas and a range of perimeter shelving. To the rear of the unit is a good-sized store room with rear vehicular access. From the store room there is access to a further secure storage area, small kitchen, staff toilets and a separate office.

Fixtures & Fittings

There has been significant investment in new fixtures and fittings and a full inventory will be made available to interested parties.

We have been advised that the majority of the fixtures and fittings are owned outright and will be included in the sale, subject to an inventory.

We are advised that the trade fixtures and fittings are substantially free from loan, lease or hire purchase agreement.

The Opportunity

Our client, the freehold owner, is an experienced multi-site retailer who bought his first store in Doncaster from the Leeds office of Christie & Co over 15 years ago. He took the opportunity to acquire the freehold of this Conisbrough store in early 2016 when the Co-Op group decided to withdraw from operations in the town. Since then, key operational changes have been affected to make it appealing to an independent retailer.

Whilst there is close corporate competition within the town, a hands-on operator should be able to exploit the town centre footfall and position to their advantage.


The store is mainly staff run with three staff members currently covering around 90 paid hours per week. TUPE regulations apply to the transfer of all staff.

Trading Information

Our client informs us that retail sales are growing and are currently in the region of £12,000 per week, Lottery sales are c.£2,000 per week with PayPoint turnover of c. £2,500 per week. There is a wholesale weekly news bill of c. £300 per week and an external ATM derives a commission income of c.£200 per month.

EPoS data will be made available to interested parties, although it should be noted that our client owns and operates a total of three stores and all have combined accounts.

Currently occupying concessions within the store are a mobile phone repairs shop and a small food takeaway business, which derive £1,000 per month income. Whilst these are on short term contracts, they would also provide a welcome income to any new tenant by subsidising the rent.

Trading Hours

7am - 9pm seven days a week

Business Rates

The Rateable Value is £16,500 with effect from April 2017. Confirmation of actual business rates payable should be obtained from the local authority.
