Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established newsagent with an enviable local reputation. Mitchells Newsagents has been under the ownership of our client for some 10 years and is now being offered to the market for sale as our client looks to pursue other business interests within another industry.
The business offers a wide range of goods from newspapers and specialist magazines, confectionary goods, cigarettes, National Health Lottery, Payzone, Newspaper delivery service, Christmas toy catalogue, fancy goods & gifts and further benefits from having a dedicated gift card area within the well-stocked premises.
There is still plenty of scope to further increase turnover with the revision of opening hours, low cost local marketing via social media and also expanding the retail lines currently stocked within the store.
