This is an excellent opportunity to purchase a licensed convenience store and Post Office Local, which is situated in the bustling city of Sunderland, Tyne and Wear.
Newcastle Road Convenience Store occupies a prime trading position on the northern outskirts of the city, close to the Stadium of Light and fronting the main (A1018) trunk road opposite a number of franchised car dealers with a large number of residential dwellings in the immediate vicinity. The area is subsequently a hive of activity throughout the day, generating high levels of regular local and passing trade.
Having been under present family ownership for the past 2 years, this heavily relied upon business has forged strong relationships with the surrounding community and therefore enjoys an extensive and loyal customer base.
Newcastle Road Convenience Store operates from a single fronted shop premises, providing deceptively spacious and versatile ground floor lock up business accommodation.
The spacious sales area is light and airy creating a welcoming environment with an open Post Office counter position. The retail space is well fitted with a range of good quality fixtures and fitments, including ample refrigeration and CCTV.
Newcastle Road Convenience Store retails a range of newspaper and magazine titles, tobacco products, soft drinks, bread, confectionery, wines, beers, spirits, dairy products and groceries, as well as also offering the usual Post Office services, National Lottery and Paypoint.
Newcastle Road Convenience Store is a successful and profitable business, yet is operated entirely by staff and therefore offers terrific potential for future growth and development. The business represents a first class investment for an ambitious hands on family unit, who can extend the opening times as well as also introducing a wider selection of stock lines. This will undoubtedly increase the weekly sales whilst also significantly reducing the wage, thus enhancing the overall profitabi
