The business is situated within the densely populated suburb of which lies just to the west of Felling town centre. The surrounding area comprises densely populated residential housing and there are strong levels of captive trade with designated parking to the front for any passing trade.
The business forms part of a small “village centre” which provides a couple of shops and includes a hot food takeaway plus a pub. A convenience store has operated from this location since the parade opened but the business has been placed on the market by the current owner after nearly 19 years as they are moving into another commercial venture.
The shop is a traditional convenience store and off licence and in addition to the general trade the shop is also a Lotto and Paypoint outlet. The premises are fully fitted and equipped for the trade and included in the sale are wall chillers and freezers together with sales counters and a CCTV system. The shop has strong levels of captive trade being located within a densely populated residential suburb close to a school and there is also some passing trade from the pub nearby.
The business is currently operated by family members and would be most profitable in similar hands but the extensive retail space means that it could be made part of a chain and the lines extended dramatically. There is a large storage and delivery area in the basement which would allow new owners to buy in bulk and maximise margins.
