Ref 7333 – Freehold Off Licence With Accommodation
Blacks Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this freehold off licence with accommodation located in Sale, Greater Manchester.
V & M Wines was established by our client in this busy area of Sale in 2001. The business offers a range of wines, beers and spirits and is very well known in this area. The business has a strong base of regular customers in place as well as benefitting from a huge amount of passing trade due to this excellent trading position. Our client has ensured the business has an excellent reputation.
V & M Wines occupies a prominent trading position on the corner of a row of residential properties. The area is densely populated residentially with some commercial properties also nearby which include independent retailers as well as large multiples including Coral and Tesco Express. There are also a number of other local amenities nearby including schools and medical centre. The area is well linked by the M60 with very strong public transport links and parking is available immediately outside the property.
The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator but due to our client’s other business commitments being higher than anticipated, the business is offered for sale. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level.
The business operates with our client only in employment.
V & M Wines has traded solidly since opening and our client has established a strong repeat customer base. The accounts year end 30th April 2020 show that the business has an annual turnover of £160,542 and a gross profit of £34,137. Full financial information is available upon request.
The business currently benefits from Small Business Rates Relief. Purchasers should enquire with relevant local authorities to confirm the rates payable.
This popular and long established business occupies an enviable trading position in a busy residential area of Sale. Our client has secured a strong customer base and exceptional reputation. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of new product lines and longer opening hours, possibly a collection and drop off service where appropriate. There is also scope to convert some of the stock area space into shop space to accommodate a new convenience product range. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Early viewings are strongly advised. Business & Property: £275,000.
