Aspire is delighted to offer for sale this busy convenience store and off licence shop, ideally located in a densely populated residential area in South Manchester.
Set in a highly desirable prime location, the business benefits from good access, with prominent store frontage and ample free car parking adjacent. The premises sit within a parade of complementary shops, attracting much passing traffic and with high footfall and excellent local custom.
There is a wide range of amenities in the locale, with Manchester city centre less than 10 miles distant.
The business is perfectly placed to access the motorway network, via the M56 or M60, with the local conurbations serviced by a number of A-roads.
There has been a store situated in these premises for over 50 years and this has been in the careful hands of the current owners for over 10 years. The business is only now offered for reluctant sale due to retirement.
The shop is set within a popular residential area, with numerous housing estates close by. The current owner has developed a solid, local customer base, providing a wide range of convenience items, groceries, newspapers, alcohol and lottery tickets.
The business is located in a corner-parade, single storey lock up shop, with wide frontage and prominent signage. The business trades under the Go Local brand. The premises are well presented and finished with a high standard of fixtures and fittings, an EPOS system, air conditioning, CCTV and are secured with a roller shutter door.
Internally the open-plan retail area is fully equipped for the trade with perimeter and aisle racking and shelving. Also in the shop is a fully length dairy fridge, double upright freezer display cabinet, 2 x double dairy chiller displays, triple door ice cream freezer and newspaper display. The wide sales counter has two serving positions, and houses the lottery terminal, card machine and cigarette storage.
To the rear of the store is an office with a sink and shelving, a fully-racked storage room, a WC and an exit door leading to an enclosed rear yard and delivery access.
With an already high turnover, there is further scope to enhance the business. It may be possible to extend the sales area into the side or rear of the premises, increasing the current display space to enable the new owner to expand the range of stock available. It may also be possible to add a cash machine.
In such a great location and with good turnover, this thriving shop makes an excellent opportunity for an already established company to add to their portfolio. Alternatively, as a walk-in-and-trade business, it would be an excellent purchase for anyone looking to enter the trade.
