Fruit & Veg Retailer

Durham £10,000 Leasehold (fees apply) REF: NE1585


The business forms part of the Newton Hall shopping centre which serves a popular housing estate to the north of Durham City and just off the A167.  The shopping centre is home to a number of independent shops and has the benefit of a free designated car park.


This is an established business which our client has owned and operated the shop for the last 3 years, having relocated from Framwellgate Moor nearby. The business has been reluctantly placed on the market due to personal circumstances.

The business operated as a fresh fruit and veg retailer and also offered a range of “world foods” in the form of sauces, spices and other dry goods. The business had built up a loyal customer base and was a destination for seasonal, traditional fruit and veg, together with more exotic offerings from around the globe.  At the moment the shop is closed due to a combination of restrictions imposed by Covid – 19, and for personal reasons.

We see the business as an opportunity for either a couple or a partnership to operate with genuine potential for motivated new owners.
