Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market The Newsbox, which is a long-established newsagent in the area, however, due to a genuine change in circumstance, our client is now looking to sell.

The newsagent has an impressive amount of newspaper rounds with a lot of clients including; The Bedford Lodge Hotel, which is the main hotel in the area and The Jockey Club, one of the main employers in the area.

The premises also has an alcohol licence and has a split of sales being approximately 30% newspapers, 30% tobacco and 25% alcohol. The remainder being on confectionery, soft drinks, crisps and food products.

The owner has also updated the shop with a new coffee machine and added extra lines of energy drinks etc to increase turnover.

There are many repeat customers, who are known by name and on race days the turnover often doubles.

Hilton Smythe highly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.

The Newsbox is located next to the clocktower in the racing town of Newmarket, Suffolk, on the main shopping road with many other independent shops and larger chains, all of which bring in a high footfall.

The footfall increases dramatically on race days.

There is ample parking around the area, which includes road parking and car parks.

The shop which is located next to the clock tower, which is a meeting point for most people, especially on race days, is entered directly off the footpath on the High Street.

The shop has the service counter to the left, behind which is the tobacco gantry, spirits and till. To the front of the counter is the confectionery stand.

There is also an ice cream freezer, household goods shelving, 4 x display drinks fridges, 3 for soft drinks and 1 for alcohol.

There are magazine stands, newspaper stands, further confectionery shelves and a large Espresso Essential coffee machine. This is on a 3 year lease that commenced March 2018 and costs £60 per week.

There is also a TV screen and a CCTV system.

To the rear of the shop is a door to the first store room which is also the kitchen area with sink and kettle. From here is a door to the lobby which has a door to the rear, a door the hall way and a door to the cellar.
