Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular general store, which is ideally located within the town of Tonypandy, Wales.

The business was originally established in 1967 and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2009. Only now is the business being offered to the market, due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 7 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £428,000, with a gross profit approximately 21%, as per the 2016 accounts.

Our client offers a wide variety of goods, including general convenience items, household goods, confectionery, chilled and frozen foods, stationery, greeting cards, alcohol and tobacco products, Pay Point facilities, the Lottery and scratch cards, to name a few. The property boasts 78 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and extremely well fitted out to suit the trade, with the main shop to the ground floor, to the first floor is a stock room, kitchenette, office space and WC.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours. A new owner could also embark on a small marketing campaign to advertise the goods and services offered. The business would also benefit from an online presence, such as social media websites, such as Facebook and Twitter, which is a popular and free way to advertise.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already popular business to the next level; therefore, early discussions with Hilton Smythe must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
