Off Licence / Convenience Store

South Shields £330,000 Freehold REF: NE1096


The property is located within a small secondary shopping area close to the junction of Chichester Road with Dean Road to the west of the town centre. The immediate area comprises a densely populated residential housing and there are good levels of both captive and passing trade with a Metro station nearby and bus stops directly outside.


This opportunity comprises a long established business which has been in the clients’ ownership since 1988 but is being placed on the market as they wish to retire. The premises offer a modern and spacious retail area that was extended and refurbished in 2010 and is fully fitted and equipped for the trade.  There is very little for any new owner to attend to on takeover.  There are high levels of captive trade from the local residents, workers and other local shop occupiers but the busy main road also generates a certain level of passing trade, particularly as there is free on street parking opposite.

To the upper floors there are two separate flats, both of which are currently rented out, generating an income of circa £12,000 per annum.  Viewing is recommended to appreciate this rare opportunity and the available accommodation.
