Portfolio of shop and one bedroom flat
Excellent business opportunity for an experienced or first time owner to purchase this portfolio containing a successful trading newsagents with a one bedroom flat above. The shop currently runs at hours of Mon-Sat 5am - 5pm and Sun 6.30am - 12.00noon and has great potential to expand the business and boost sales by opening later hours and introducing alcohol sales (subject to licence approval). The shop is located on the ground floor with approx. 1000 sq ft sales area and small storage area to the rear. There is a staircase leading to the office and WC on the first floor. The first floor has a very well presented one bedroom flat with bay window lounge, internal kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The flat is entered via the storeroom or externally. This would make a fantastic opportunity for the right 'hands-on' owner/operator to take this business to the next level or to start a new business, possibly a hairdressers, nail bar, beauty salon or tanning shop (subject to consents). The commercial unit can be sold on its own with fixtures and fittings subject to negotiation (stock not included). Copy of financial statement for year ending March 2017 on request.
