Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established convenience store and three bedroom house, ideally located within the village of Parcllyn, Ceredigion.
The business was originally established by our clients' family in 1940 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients' desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 6½ days per week and according to the accounts year ending April 2015, the business generates a turnover in the region of £412,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 16%, as well as a Post Office salary of £12,000 per annum.
Our clients' offer a wide variety of goods including convenience items, household goods, fresh fruit and vegetables, chilled food, frozen food, greeting cards, stationery, alcohol, tobacco products and the Lottery, to name a few, as well as offering Post office services.
The store boasts approximately 99 sq. metres of floor space, is well maintained and very well fitted out to suit the trade. The owners house is set over two floors and offers a lounge/dining area, a kitchen, a bathroom, a large office and three bedrooms.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the goods and services offered.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving and well-established business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
TENUREWe are advised freehold.
HOURSThe business is open:
Monday - Saturday: 8.00am - 6.00pm
Sunday: 8.00am - 12.30pm
STAFFThe business is owner run and managed with 4 x part time staff members.
