Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Mayuras Food & Wine, a well-stocked convenience store that specialises in Indian foods along with everyday essentials and alcohol.
Due to the high Asian population in the area the store takes around £8,000 per week and this can be extended on as PayPal and National Lottery have only just been added to the business along with a card machine. The business is also being sold with a 2 bedroom flat, located directly above the premises which is currently let on an assured shorthold tenancy at £1000 per month.
Mayuras sells products from the following ranges and more besides:
Indian food and spices
Confectionery and crisps
The business was taken over by our client in 2019 and our client has added new lines to the stock and undergone a minor refurbishment programme, however, due to recent family news is reluctantly looking to sell and is marketing at a lower price than the figure paid.
There are many reasons to buy Mayuras including:
£8,000 per week turnover without Lottery, PayPal and card machine
High footfall area
Densely populated area
Main road location close to schools
There is scope for further development of the business by considering:
The addition of a butcher’s counter, no other local butcher
Addition of social media site to promote the business
Addition of a website to promote the business
Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.
