Business Description
Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this outstanding Convenience Store & Post office which is located in Worcester. The business has been established for 10 years and has been in the careful hands of our clients for the past 6 years. Reluctantly the business is now being offered for sale to so that they can concentrate on other business interests. Since ownership they have continually invested in new equipment along with 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. J S Convenience Store is overseen by the owners but is mainly operated by a team of 1 full time and 4 part time staff members and has an impressive weekly turnover of circa £13,000. This is a main local post office and the salary is an impressive £60,000 pa. They retail groceries, bread, frozen foods, dairy produce, stationary, cold drinks, slush puppies, confectionery, newspapers, magazines, greeting cards, hardware, toiletries, pet foods, tobacco, beers ,wines and spirits. Other services include an ATM cash machine and instant coffee machine. The property also comes with a 2 bedroom flat above which is currently sub-let for £125 per week. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by expanding upon the current opening times and having a more hands on owner operator. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business which is priced sensibly and is great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this gem is not to be missed.
