The business is situated within the densely populated suburb of Donwell which lies on the north eastern outskirts of Washington. The surrounding area comprises predominantly residential housing and there are strong levels of captive trade with ample on-street external parking.
The business forms part of a busy suburban parade which provides a range of shops including a very busy hot food takeaway. A convenience store has operated from this location for a number of years but the business has been placed on the market by the current owner as they wish to concentrate on their other business 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 in excellent order and were entirely refurbished in 2016 and included the installation of fitted wall chillers and freezers together with sales counters and a CCTV system. The shop has strong levels of captive trade being located at the main entrance to a densely populated residential suburb.
The business is predominantly operated under management and would be an ideal opportunity for owner operators who could drive the sales forward. The seller is of the opinion that weekly sales could be in excess of £15,000 weekly.
