Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of Premier Rainbow Hill Convenience Store which is a well-established business with a renowned reputation amongst local residents.

This is a superb opportunity to take on a high turnover local business in an area teeming with customers.

There has been a similar type of business at these premises since the 1950’s (formerly a busy CO-OP supermarket) and the current owners have run it successfully and lucratively for the last 5 years during which time it has thrived and enhanced its status as being an important part of the local community.

The business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to the owners wish to pursue a change of direction.

The business is extremely well stocked with a comprehensive range of products including;

• Newspapers and Magazines
• Tobacco and vaping products
• Beers, wines and spirits
• Confectionery
• Fruit and vegetables
• Fresh Meat

• Takeaway coffee
• Ice creams
• Greeting cards and gift bags
• General groceries
• Sandwiches and snacks
• Dairy products
• Soft drinks
• Crisps and snacks.

Additionally, the business has a Paypoint terminal with takings of approximately £4000 per week and a Lotto terminal (£2000 per week). The business has a News bill of roughly £475-£500 per week. There is an externally filled cash point machine to the front of the store.

Premier Rainbow Hill has an impressive number of regular customers many of whom use the business on a daily basis and are known on a first name basis by the current owners who are popular and well-respected members of the local community. The business enjoys great visibility on the internet.

Financial Profile

Premier Rainbow Hill is Located in Worcester in the county of Worcestershire.

Worcester is a city 31 miles southwest of Birmingham and 27 miles north of Gloucester. The population is approximately 100,000. The River Severn flanks the western side of the city centre which is overlooked by the 12th century Worcester Cathedral.

The M5 Motorway runs north-south immediately to the east of the city and is accessed by Junction 6 and Junction 7. This makes the city easily accessible to most parts of the country including London which is only 118 miles using the A44 via the Cotswolds and M40. A faster journey to London is possible via the M5, M42 and M40.

Worcester has two railway stations, Worcester Foregate Street and Worcester Shrub Hill. Both stations frequently serve Birmingham via Droitwich Spa, Kidderminster and Stourbridge. From both stations trains run to Pershore, Evesham and onto the Cotswolds, Oxford and London.

Premier Rainbow Hill is ideally and prominently situated on the Astwood Road which is one of the main arterial roads in and out of Worcester city centre.

This is an area of densely populated, residential housing which is a mix of property types ranging from large detached villas to flats and bedsits. The area is popular with students attending the University of Worcester.

The business is located in a small but unusually busy and vibrant shopping parade alongside other complimentary retail businesses such as a barbers, hairdressers and wedding shop and thus benefits from high levels of footfall and passing trade.

The business is beautifully presented and maintained with clear, visible signage and the distinctive Premier branding.

There is free off-street parking immediately outside the premises and there is free on street parking in the roads close to the Business.
