The business is situated on the main road running to the south of this expanding town and approximately 2 miles to the south of the main town centre. Ashington is well served by roads and the A189 Spine Road connects the town quickly with surrounding areas and on towards the A19 and A1.

The business occupies a prominent site on a busy roundabout at the junction of Milburn Road and Newbiggin Road and adjacent to a pleasant private housing estate and a busy GP Surgery centre. There is ample free on street parking and Newbiggin Road is a busy bus route.


This business has been in the same family ownership since the late 1990’s but has now been placed on the market as they are looking to reduce their commercial commitments.

The business trades as a traditional CTN, convenience store with off licence and Post Office. The premises is fitted and equipped for the trade and are in good order with little for any new owner to attend to on acquisition. Over the last few years the owners have invested in new chiller units and LED lighting and CCTV has been installed to the retail element. There is scope to extend the lines sold and the evening hours could be extended from the existing 5.30pm closing time as the shop is permitted to sell alcohol till 10pm. The Post Office only trades core hours but there is genuine potential to push the later trading hours and the local housing estates and busy main road are likely to support this move.

Our client applied for planning permission to develop the upper floor into 2 or 3 bedroom living accommodation and these plans are available on request.
