Former retail premises
Bridgend Convenience Store is a substantial property set over three floors which previously traded successfully as a village store and newsagent. Now offered for sale with vacant possession this unit extends to around 130m2 and is currently fitted out to a good standard which would require only a modest capital outlay to bring it back into operation fairly quickly. The business has a generally sound trading history and there is certainly demand for its facilities and services within the immediate area. Located just off the A9 the shop is conveniently located on this main arterial route, attracting a good level of passing trade and serving the local communities. Bridgend Convenience Store ceased trading in 2017 following the relocation of the tenant, which has resulted in this retail opportunity being presented to the market.
