Transworld Business Advisors is pleased to offer for sale this off licence which has serviced the local community for over 20 years before being run by the current owner. The shop offers a comprehensive range of alcoholic beverages including beers, ciders, selection of wines, spirits and soft drinks. Although drinks are the main goods on sale the shop also offers a small range of essential groceries, snacks, confectionary, ice creams and slushes.
The current owner who also owns the freehold has been creative with his stock selection and runs a range of limited period highly competitive offers which have been popular with customers increasing sales and margins.
The premises consist of a double fronted shop with custom made drink display cabinets along the walls. There is a freezer for the ice creams, a large drinks fridge to enable customers to buy their beverages chilled, a counter for the slush machines and a serving counter. Behind the public areas there is a small office space with a desk, computer and CCTV screen. In addition there is small kitchen and separate staff toilet.
The shop is located in a large residential area on one of the main roads into the centre of a popular seaside Sussex town with ample street parking. Having been long established the shop attracts local residents but also visitors to the town as there are relatively few shops in the immediate vicinity.
In order to boost sales the shop could be re-launched with some redecoration, a marketing campaign and the creation of a digital presence to attract even more customers.
The shop is currently being run by the landlord who does not have a retail background and is keen to see the business prosper in new hands. The landlord is prepared to offer a new ten year lease, with a break, on favourable terms at £6950 pa.
We have been advised that weekly turnover varies between £700 to £1,500 per week.
This is a fantastic opportunity to own an established off licence at a highly competitive price.
Asking price: £15,000 plus stock.
