Hilton Smythe are delighted to bring to the market a fantastic opportunity to acquire on a freehold basis this long standing and well respected traditional local butchers.

Allan Campbell Butchers has been trading from this location for many years building up an excellent local reputation. Our client took over the store 10 years ago which is an impressive amount of time and has thoroughly enjoyed running the business and is now looking to sell due to the desire to concentrate on other business interests.

The business only sells quality meats (mostly to order) sourced locally and then prepared using traditional methods.

Currently the business sells mainly hot & cold pies & fresh cakes, coffees and some hot filled rolls.

The business trades at a pace to suit our client , leaving massive potential for this well positioned local business.We feel there is fantastic scope to increase turnover with extended opening hours, along with  the opportunity to create an informative website and expand the range of food stuffs and products currently stocked further with a new operator given the opportunity to put their own spin on things, along with the introduction of a delivery service.

This is a rare and excellent opportunity for a new operator to take on a popular and well-established business in an excellent location with a growing population, a true turn key business opportunity with the benefit of loyal customers and an established supply chain
