Description

Freehold £149,950 Plus SAV

Hilton Smythe are delighted to introduce William Brass to the market. The business has been proudly owned by the same family for three generations. This is a reluctant sale due to the current owners wishes to retire.

William Brass (fruiterer/florist) enjoys a prime centre village location, the principal business activities lie in the serving of everyday commodities, providing a comprehensive range of convenience foods, fresh vegetables, sweets, and chilled drinks, everything one would expect from a village convenience store. William Brass also services the community as the local florist; we feel the florist aspect of the business has massive potential for growth as the business has been run at a pace to suit our client.

With extended working hours and with an injection of marketing and advertising, relating to the florist component of the business, we believe would certainly pay dividends for this long established and successful business.

Above the shop is a three bedroom flat, currently rented out by the owner. A garage is also available for rental purposes, further increasing income.

The size of the premise also lends to alternative uses, perhaps as an alternative retail outlet or would be a superb investment opportunity for an investor.
