Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market this very well-established, thriving general Grocery store, in this heavily populated residential area.
The business itself is thriving. It has been run by the current owner for 20 years now and has a great reputation and loyal customer base.
Our clients are now looking towards a very well-earned retirement.
They supply a wide range of products with approximately 60% of turnover coming from the sale of fruit and veg, flowers, plants etc and 40% being general convenience selling products such as food supplies, sweets, pet foods and supplies, frozen foods and ice cream.
They also offer a lucrative ups pick up and drop off point and have exclusive selling rights in the area for the sale of Burns high quality dog food.
In the spring and summer, they are tremendously busy with the sale of bedding plants and shrubs, which offer a fantastic revenue stream for the shop. They also carry out some local deliveries and have a social media presence on Facebook with 5-star reviews.
They are very enthusiastic owners who take great pride in their shop, with great turnover and profit figures, however there is still much potential for the business to be taken to the next level with longer hours including Sunday opening, a website with online sales, more advertising and social media and a dedicated delivery service to the wider area.
This is a fantastic business, which would ideally suit a new energetic owner who could push the business forward.
An internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate the quality and potential on offer.
The current owners are more than happy to help and advise during the transition period.
