Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market Mini Market Food & Wine, a much-loved community convenience store with over 10 years trading history. Our client recently purchased the business but due to family relocation is reluctantly placing the business on the market.
Due to the need for a quick sale, our client has requested a low asking price to attract early interest.
A new 20-year lease is now in place.
The business currently offers -
- Convenience goods, essential groceries, frozen food, fresh bread, dairy products and snacks, choice of herbs and cooking sauces, cakes, confectionery, crisps and soft drinks, loose vegetables, fruit.
- Household products, toiletries, stationery, greeting cards, ice cream, large choice of bagged sweets, children’s treats, fresh coffee to go.
- Large choice of beers, wines, ciders, spirits and alcohol pops
- Cigarettes, vaping fluids, Oyster card, batteries, atm machine.
- Hermes parcel collection service
Our client is also introducing -
- Freshly baked morning goods - croissants, pasties, breads
- Western Union money transfer service
We would advise any new owner also looks to add the following services -
- Local post office counter services
- Mobile phone accessories
- More lines of snacks, sandwiches to go
Our client informs us that he has undertaken initial conversations with the Post Office who have offered to a local counter as well as a £32,000 refit allowance too. Any new buyer would be wise to continue with this arrangement.Location
