High street retail property for sale

Property description

***Potential development opportunity for 2 town houses***
***Serious offers will be considered***

Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Paul Saywell Butchers. This family run traditional butchers was originally founded by our clients some 40 years ago and has an enviable reputation for quality produce and friendly service and is very well supported by the local community.

The butchers is a good size and fully equipped to suit the trade. Revenue is derived from the sale of quality fresh produce, supplied from reputable sources. The business sells a great selection of meats, cooked meats, speciality packs for events such as barbeques, a range of seasoned sausages and burgers all prepared in-house. The business sees a lot of repeat trade in addition to passing trade and reports a healthy turnover of just over £100,000 for this financial year with a gross profit at 33%.

To the rear of the butchers is a fully equipped bake-house, currently not used due to our client’s unfortunate ill health, but could very easily be reinstated by the new owner to produce pies and pastries and other bakery products to increase revenue. In addition opening hours could be extended to attract further custom.
