Property description

Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market Dokrat News, an extremely busy newsagents, which is ideally located on Alverthorpe Rd, Wakefield.

The business was established over 40 years ago with our client taking over in 1997. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client's desire to spend more time with family, and semi-retire.

The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £140,000 per annum.

Our client offers a variety of goods including, cards, confectionery, soft drinks, ice cream and tobacco products as well as a parcel service point.

The shop is well presented and fitted out to suit the trade.

There is ample scope to increase the already thriving turnover such as expanding the news delivery round, extending opening hours, introducing lottery and further parcel delivery services. Also, there is an option to introduce alcohol sales.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

The business is located amongst an abundance of homes and schools providing ample footfall.
