Business Description
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this delightful convenience store which is located in the popular Cornish market town of Liskeard. The business has been established for over 70 years and has been in the careful hands of our clients since 2003. Reluctantly the business is now being offered for sale so that they can enjoy a well deserved retirement. Since ownership they have continually refurbished and invested in new fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. Addington Stores is owner operated and employs the help of 1 full time and 2 part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of £402,003 with a gross profit of £80,567 (20%) plus services commissions of £10,958. The retail area is approximately 90 sq m and stocks a fine range of fresh bakery products, dairy produce, locally sourced meat products, ready meals, general groceries, tinned products, frozen foods, newspapers, confectionery, magazines, tobacco lines, greeting cards, beers, wines and spirits. Other services include the National Lottery, Pay Point and Collect Plus Parcel services where they handle in excess of 100 parcels per week. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade should you wish by expanding upon the current opening times, stock levels and offering a newspaper delivery service. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade along with many new visiting tourists. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established lifestyle business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
