An opportunity to acquire this really delightful true village stores in every sense of the word – this shop is the only store in the village. Situated in the Lake District National Park, literally surrounded by rolling countryside and only a few minutes from the beach – monopoly trading position in this absolute idyllic setting. Reluctant sale after 38 years here due to retirement and ill health. The business is worked in easy hours over a six and a half day week, closing at 5.30pm apart from Saturday which is 7pm. This site oozes potential to double the existing turnover with wider wine selection, proper deli, real bacons, cheese, bake off unit and, because there are no butchers in the village, the introduction of fresh meats and by extending the hours would make a real difference here. Highly recommended – view early. Rarely do business and properties of this calibre reach the open market. Substantial freehold premises comprising modern, double glass fronted sales shop incorporating many departments, including modern Post Office department, wines, beers, spirits, deli department, confectionery, news, greetings cards, groceries and so much more.
