Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this newsagent business in Liverpool, Merseyside. The business was established by our client over 50 years ago, and is only now being offered to the market due to our client`s desire for a well earned retirement. The business is open 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £335,540 with a gross profit at 12% as per 2017 accounts. Butterfields generates its turnover through the sale of newspapers, magazines, cards, tobacco products and convenience lines, as well as Paypoint, Payzone and the Health Lottery.
There is scope to increase turnover by embarking on a modest marketing campaign and possibly extending the opening hours.

A Lottery terminal has was recently installed within the business, which will increase the turnover.
