Property description

An opportunity to acquire this sizeable newsagent and card shop retail unit ideally positioned prominently on the high street of Chester-le-Street in County Durham.


A very well established newsagent and card shop with a loyal customer base on a central high street location in Chester-le-Street . The business has a large sized shop floor trading area of 1,200 sq/ft and lends itself to good potential to expand product range through the introduction of convenience and off licence goods. Lottery commissions are approximately £20,000 per year with a loyal customer base. The business is up for sale due to a change in the owners circumstances.

Open plan trading area with new fixtures and fittings. Recently a new £7,000 five metre open dairy chiller cabinet, new epos till system, new shelving, CCTV system and security door have been fitted.

There is the opportunity for a new owner to further develop the business and capitalise on its location and lack of direct competition.
