Buy from your local shop

Buy local

Supermarkets may dominate the UK food market, but convenience stores also play a large part. £37.5bn of 2016’s grocery sales were bought in small convenience shops, and industry analysts predict this will rise by 11% in the coming years. Britons are expected to favour regular food top-ups from local shops rather than the “big shop” every week or fortnight at the large supermarket.

Recently there has been a big push to ‘buy local’ and support independent businesses in all sectors. Consumers are losing trust in big business – just look at the supermarket horsemeat scandal – and turning to small businesses for niche products and quality service.

Become a shopkeeper

Have you ever wondered how much a shopkeeper earns? Convenience stores and local green grocers don’t have to work hard to attract customers – they have an instant customer base in the surrounding neighbourhood. Most people visit the corner shop at least a couple of times a week for groceries, magazines, newspapers, scratch cards, cigarettes or alcohol.

Being your own boss also has a number of perks. Choose your working hours, and see your hard work translate into profit margins. If you take a look at any of our convenience stores for sale you can get an idea of the annual turnover. This differs depending on location and goods offered.

A lot of convenience store properties also include self-contained residential flats or development opportunities. This can be a place for you and your family to live, or you could increase the earning potential by renting it out.
