Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of The Village Shop which is a well-established General Convenience store with a renowned reputation amongst local residents. This is a superb opportunity to take on a high turnover local business in an area teeming with customers.
There has been a grocery type business at these premises for nearly 100 years and the current owners have run it successfully and lucratively for the last 20 years or so during which time it has flourished and become a real part of the local landscape and accrued a fantastic reputation. The business has loads of regular customers, many of whom are known on a first name basis by the current owners who are popular and well-respected members of the local community.
This wonderful business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with heavy hearts only due to the owners wishes to enjoy a well-earned retirement and possible change of direction, they are keen to see their beloved convenience store pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner (s) who can take this already thriving business to the next level.
