The business itself

The business has been in the family for many years and as such is now a mainstay of the local community particularly given it's ideal location on the high street.

As well as the retail side, the business also enjoys a good level of catering sales to local hotels, pubs, takeaway vans and similar. This gives the business good diversification and there would appear to be scope to extend this further if so wished.

The business benefits from a significant turnover with a profit margin to match which has been enjoyed at a regular level for many years. The rent currently being received from the apartment above further adds to this, although a new owner may of course prefer to utilise the property for their own personal use. There is also a refrigerated sign-written van included with the sale to aid deliveries to the catering customers.


All measurements are approximate and for guidance only.

The shop is well positioned on the high street and offers a warm welcome through it's glazed frontage underneath a traditional red and white canopy. Vehicular access is also provided to the side leading to the rear car park, part of which is included in the lease and provides space for approximately 4 cars and bin storage.

There is a good size customer area to the front with a large refrigerated unit providing lots of room to display all the various offerings available. A further refrigerated open fronted display unit can also be found here for self service as well as a number of wooden dressers displaying other products. To the rear of the counter is the staff service area with a computerised scale and till EPOS system with 3 screens plus a further in the back room, all of which are linked.
