Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market J&D News.

The business has been operated by the current vendors for over 4 years and is well established within Earl Shilton, having traded as a newsagent for over 35 years.

Due to health reasons this rare and exciting opportunity has now become available.

The business has a long established and growing customer base with 15 newspaper rounds currently servicing the local community, the business also sells a range of general convenience including

• Tobacco
• Confectionary
• Cold drinks
• Ice cream
• A wide range of gift cards
• Food
• Cleaning products
• Phone accessories

The business could easily be expanded by tweaking the convenience offering further, as well as obtaining a licence to sell alcohol and extend the opening hours to enable the store to trade to its full potential maximising profitability

The site is also in arguably one of the best locations in the town with busy passing trade travelling along the high street as well as being on one of the main arterial routes to the new housing developments, which are continually expanding and increasing the potential for this golden business opportunity.
