Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this delightful Newsagents which is located in Mannamead Plymouth. The business has been established for over 50 years and has been in the careful hands of my client for the past 6 years and is reluctantly being offered for sale so that they can concentrate on other business ventures. Since ownership they have continually invested in new equipment along with fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and are 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. The business is owner operated and requires the help of 1 full time and 3 part time members of staff and has an annual turnover of £410,429 with a gross profit of £126,318 (30.77%). Mannamead News retails a range of products such as newspapers, magazines, confectionery, ice creams, cold drinks, greeting cards, gifts, tobacco, e cigarettes, vape products and stationary. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by offering additional services, maybe adding an off-license and by extending upon the current opening hours. There are a number of new housing developments being built within the area which would give potential to increase the newspaper delivery rounds and bring more footfall to the area. The business already 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 a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
