£500K - £1M
Net Profit:
Not applicable

Sovereign are delighted to market this quaint community newsagent on the high street which the present owner has operated this store for 24 years. The newspaper store has been trading in the town for 105 years contributing to this historical location.

The business is ideally suited to a hands-on owner-operator. This presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner-operator or team to take the business to the next level. There is plenty of scope to develop the business further with the introduction of new product lines and longer opening hours.

The vendor stocks over 700 magazines, a wide range of greeting cards, sweets & drinks and are specialist tobacconists.

The business turnover could notably be increased with the introduction of alcohol sales and extend the current opening hours. Certainly the introduction of products aimed towards the tourist market would increase sales dramatically

Today’s visitors are attracted by the town’s calm, its nearness to some of the more peaceful lakes and mountains, and the fact that Dorothy and William Wordsworth were born here.

The vendor has a genuine reason for selling this sought after freehold, with spacious four bed living accommodation. The living area comprises a ground floor kitchen, lounge, shower room with toilet leading onto a rear yard. To the first floor of the property, there is also four double bedrooms with a spacious lounge and family size bathroom. Gas and electricity are supplied to the property.

This proposition would ideally suit an owner who could push the business forward and build upon the solid and impressive trading foundations. Viewing is therefore highly recommended.
