Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of New Hall Express which is a well-established convenience store with a renowned reputation amongst residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a high turnover local business in an area teeming with customers.
There has been a convenience store at this site for over 25 years. The current owners have run it as New Hall Green Express for the last 3 years and the business has been a real labour of love for them. The business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with heavy hearts only due to personal circumstances, the vendors are keen to see their beloved convenience store pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner (s) who can take it to the next level.
New Hall Green Express is well stocked and offers a range of products including:
- Beers, wines and spirits.
- Cigarettes and vaping products.
- Crisps and snacks.
- General groceries.
- Greeting cards.
- Frozen food.
- Top up cards.
- Parcel services.
Additionally, the business has both a Pay point (£1000 per week) and Payzone (£300 per week) terminal and is the only shop for some distance that can accept bill payments. The business also has a Lotto terminal (approx. £800 per week)
New Hall Green Express has an impressive number of regular customers many of whom are known on a first name basis by the current owners who are popular and well-respected members of the local community. The business is opposite a busy college and close to local schools and this has a very positive effect on footfall.
Reasons to Buy:
- A well-established business with an enviable reputation and many existing customers.
- Prime trading position on a busy main road and in a densely populated residential area.
- Low running costs with inexpensive rent and no business rates.
